There are so many fancy desserts and snacks coming in and going out of fashion these days, but there is one simple baked-good that will always stand the test of time and remain a firm favourite no matter what your age.
Yes, I’m talking about the humble cookie. There are so many varieties, and they can always be adjusted to suit different tastes and restricted dietary requirements. There’s literally a cookie out there for everyone!
They’re so easy to make as well! Usually only simple ingredients and utensils are needed for the task, and they’re one of those things that are great for the grandkids to help out with, encouraging them to get involved in the kitchen. Of course, they’ll also be happy to eat them when they come out of the oven too!
The only tricky part can be getting the shape right. Cookies often spread in the oven, and if you don’t get the spacing right you can end up with one big sheet of cookie (which doesn’t sound terrible, but generally speaking, we want nice, round, individual cookies).
This super simple trick will help you get soft, doughy, and perfectly round cookies every time, and all you need is a muffin tin!
Yes, baking your cookies in muffin tins will stop them spreading, so you’ll get them perfect every time!
