- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheet. Advertisement.
- Sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
- In a large bowl, cream butter or margarine with sugar. Beat in eggs and lemon flavoring.
- Drop batter by tablespoons onto prepared sheets 1 1/2 inches apart.
- Bake 12 to 15 minutes.
Water vapor escaping from the dough in combination with the carbon dioxide released by our baking soda is ultimately what makes our cookies light and airy. Baking powder creates extra leavening and a fluffier cookie. Many recipes call for either one or a combination of both.
Substitute or Add Ingredients
- Add Molasses or Honey. Another way to add more moisture to your cookies is incorporate a tablespoon of molasses into a standard-sized cookie recipe.
- Replace Butter with Vegetable Shortening.
- Double Your Yolks.
- Use Baking Powder.
Parks recommends throwing a little malted milk powder into your cookie batter to capitalize on the Maillard reaction. Malted milk powder adds a butterscotchy note, and its milk solids fuel the reaction to make cookies browner and more flavorful than before.
But, in terms of nutritional value, the cookie, unless it is huge and dense, will likely have less calories than a muffin. Ideally, make a healthier homemade cookie or muffin yourself. Enjoy! Both contain, typically, eggs, butter and milk, some of the most nutritious foods.

Adding an extra egg yolk increases chewiness. Rolling the cookie dough balls to be taller than wider increases thickness. Using melted butter (and slightly more flour) increases chewiness. Chilling the dough results in a thicker cookie.
- That fluffy texture you want in a cake results from beating a lot of air into the room temperature butter and sugar, and it does the same for cookies.
- Use melted butter for a denser, chewier cookie.
- Play with the liquid ratio in your recipe.
- Use all-purpose or bread flour.
- Increase the sugar content slightly.
Cookies are too hard If the cookies were baked too long or the temperature of the oven was too high they will come out hard. Ovens can vary in temperature; if you are having trouble with yours buy an oven thermometer to check the temperature. And if in doubt try baking a test cookie to find the perfect texture.
Butter contributes milk solids and water to a cookie, both of which soften it. Brown sugar contributes molasses – again, a softener. Using lower-moisture sugar (granulated) and fat (vegetable shortening), plus a longer, slower bake than normal, produces light, crunchy cookies.
Bake at 375 degrees F until golden and tender, 12 to 15 minutes. For crispy-cakey cookies: Bake the cookies at 425 degrees F until golden and crunchy on the outside, 8 to 10 minutes. For chewy cookies: Use 1 cup light brown sugar and 1/4 cup corn syrup and omit the granulated sugar.
Creating the Cookies You Want There are three main types of cookie categories: crispy, cakey, and chewy. For softer, chewier cookies, you will want to add much less granulated sugar, slightly more brown sugar, and a fair bit less butter. For cakey cookies, you will often be including even less butter and sugar.
The simple answer to this question is, meet in the middle. Cookies should (almost) always be baked on the middle rack of the oven. The middle rack offers the most even heat and air circulation which helps cookies bake consistently.
When added to cake, cookie and shortbread recipes, cornstarch helps create a crumbly and tender dessert-like texture. Commercially, cornstarch is often used as an anti-caking agent.
Cookies spread because the fat in the cookie dough melts in the oven. If there isn’t enough flour to hold that melted fat, the cookies will over-spread. Spoon and level that flour or, better yet, weigh your flour. If your cookies are still spreading, add an extra 2 Tablespoons of flour to the cookie dough.
