Use ungreased cookie sheets. Do not use parchment paper or those non stick liners either. These were not meant for chocolate chip cookies. By greasing cookie sheets, this will cause the chocolate chip cookies to spread.
How do you keep cookie dough from sticking to the scoop?
You can use an ice cream scoop or cookie scoop. But make sure and spray the scoops with unflavored cooking spray to keep dough from sticking and making your cookies a true match in size. If you notice the dough starts sticking again, simply re-spray!
What is the most common temperature to bake a cookie?
350° is the standard temp for a cookie, and it’s a great one. Your cookies will bake evenly and the outside will be done at the same time as the inside. Baking at 325° also results in an evenly baked cookie, but the slower cooking will help yield a chewier cookie.
Why did my cookies stick to the parchment paper?
Cookies prepared with lots of eggs have a greater tendency to stick. Try using no-stick cooking spray or parchment paper. The amount of fat in the cookie dough affects how easily the baked cookies can be removed from the sheet. Follow recipe directions, and lightly spray cookie sheets with no-stick cooking spray.
How long should you bake cookies at 350?
Place one baking sheet at a time onto center rack of preheated 350 degree F oven. Bake until cookies are golden around the edges, still have pale tops, and are soft in the center, about 8 to 10 minutes. (Do not overbake! They will firm up more during cooling.)
Can I use parchment paper instead of greasing pan for cookies?
You do not need to put any grease or oil on the parchment paper. Cookies will slide off the paper if you pick them up with a spatula and a cake will come out of the pan easily. Parchment paper can be used for several batches of the same recipe being baked on the same cookie/baking sheet in a few batches.
Can I grease a cookie sheet instead of parchment paper?
Since parchment paper is often used to create a nonstick surface, greasing the pan will accomplish the same results. Coat your cookie sheet or pan with cooking spray, butter, or oil. Then, lay the food directly on the pan. This will work for everything but the most delicate or gooey treats.
