cookie fix tricks of the trade.
time tested and proven!
Freshly baked is always best, therefore, if possible, bake only what you will eat today.
For best results, use a great cookie sheet. We prefer Dough Makers brand (which we sell in store) and William Sonoma Gold Touch or Traditional pans for their heavy-duty, commercial-gauge aluminized steel designed for uniform heat conduction with even baking.
A thin, dark, cheap cookie sheet will burn the bottom of your cookies. Cookie sheets with “air” will not produce a crispy cookie. Silpat sheets can make cookies spread.
We use parchment paper for baking at Cookie Fix.
Every oven is different. Keep an eye on the baking, as you can always add a minute but you can’t take a minute away!
Bake from FROZEN for a “tall” crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside cookie.
Bake from FRIDGE if a flatter, crispy cookie desired. Extend baking time until desired golden brown color is achieved.
The signature Cookie Fix cookie is crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside. Cookies continue to bake and set after coming out of the oven.
For cookie varieties that come with sea salt on top, you will knock some of the sea salt off with your hands when breaking the dough balls apart. Therefore, if desired, add a twist of sea salt to each dough ball before putting the pan in the oven. (We do this at Cookie Fix for all of our salted varieties.)
Frozen cookie dough remains good for up to 6 months in freezer. After that, frozen dough food safety does not decline, but it is up to your discretion for food quality.
If leftovers, store in an airtight container after completely cool.
Baked cookies may be stored in an airtight container for up to five days. For optimum freshness and flavor we recommend freezing any cookies that will not be eaten immediately in an airtight container.
“Refresh” cookies by wrapping loosely in a very slightly damp paper towel and warming in microwave for 10 seconds. Thaw frozen cookies before refreshing in microwave or increase time in the microwave a few seconds. ENJOY!
