About Cookie Making.

Cookie doughs come in a variety of different forms and range from doughs that are soft enough to drop to those that are stiff enough to shape into a roll and slice for baking. Doughs can be spread in a pan and cut after cooking or rolled and shaped with cookie cutters.

How to Shape Cookies.

Cookie dough will be more easily handled and shaped if they are well chilled beforehand. Make your dough as soft as can be handled and only use as much as can be handled at one time. Keep all remaining dough refrigerated until ready to use.

Working your dough quickly, shape it into a smooth ball and place it on a lightly floured board. Starting from the center and working out towards the edges, use a floured rolling pin to work the dough to an even thickness. Shift the dough often to prevent it from sticking to the board but do not turn it over. Be sure to keep particles of dough from sticking to the rolling pin and board. If needed add dustings of flour to the board or rolling pin but don't use more than necessary as too much flour will make your cookies tough.

When using a cookie cutter, dip it in flour and shake off the excess. Cut your cookies as close together as possible to eliminate waste. The leftover dough after cutting can be returned to the chilled store for rerolling and cutting, but cookies made from this dough will not be as tender. The dough can also be shaped into small balls, placed on a cookie sheet, and flattened using a fork or spatula.

Place the cut cookie dough on cookie sheets using a spatula and leave about 1 inch of space between cookies.

Baking Cookies.

Cookies should be baked on a cookie sheet with no or very low sides. This allows even circulation of heat so that the cookies will brown nicely and evenly. Remember to always pre-heat your oven.
