How to Make the Perfect Homemade Cookies from Scratch

There’s nothing quite like the smell of freshly baked homemade cookies, and nothing quite like the feeling of satisfaction that comes from making cookies from scratch yourself. If you’re looking to make the perfect batch of cookies, follow these five easy tips:

1. Find the Right Recipe
It all comes down to the recipe. When it comes to making soft cookies, you want to make sure that you use a recipe that includes plenty of butter. This will help to create a soft, tender cookie that are packed with flavor.

2. Use High-Quality Ingredients
Anyone can make cookies from a mix, but it takes a little extra effort to make cookies from scratch. The difference is in the ingredients. Instead of using margarine or vegetable shortening, real butter gives cookies a richer flavor. And instead of artificial vanilla extract, cookies made with pure vanilla extract taste more complex and nuanced. These higher-quality ingredients do cost a bit more, but they’re worth it when you want your cookies to stand out from the rest.

3. Chill the dough before baking
If you’re looking for homemade cookies that are thick and chewy, make sure to chill the dough before baking. Chilling the dough helps to firm up the fats, which in turn prevents the cookies from spreading too much during baking. As a result, you’ll end up with a thicker, chewier cookie that’s absolutely delicious. 

4. Bake at a low temperature:
Baking cookies can also be tricky, as they can easily become burnt or too crispy. The key is to bake at a low temperature, which will help to prevent the cookies from burning or becoming too hard. Additionally, it is important to watch the cookies closely while they are in the oven, as they can go from perfect to burned in a matter of minutes. With a little practice, anyone can learn to bake delicious cookies that are perfect every time.  Make sure to avoid over-baking your cookies. Once they start to turn golden brown, they’re probably done – so take them out of the oven and enjoy!

5. Allow cookies to cool before removing from the baking sheet.
Baking is a delicate process, and even a few degrees can make a big difference in the outcome of your recipe. That’s why it’s important to let your baked goods cool properly before removing them from the baking sheet. Allowing them to cool for a few minutes helps to prevent them from sticking, and also allows the heat to evenly distribute throughout the cookie. As a result, you’ll end up with perfectly baked cookie that’s easy to remove and won’t crumble apart. So next time you’re baking, be sure to let your creations cool for a few minutes before transfer them to a wire rack. Your taste buds will thank you!

Jolene’s Famous Edible Cookie Dough Eggless Eggnog

The Christmas after we launched Dible Dough, when it was holiday season again, I wondered, why was I willing to risk consuming raw eggs in eggnog, when I wasn’t willing to in cookie dough? I started looking for a great recipe for eggless nog. After much trial and error, I finally found one by Kimberly at The Savvy Mama Lifestyle that I loved. She found the perfect combination of ingredients. We added one essential ingredient to transform Kim’s recipe from Eggnog to Cookie Dough Eggnog. The secret ingredient is Dough Ball Whiskey, a company after my own heart, that makes a whiskey inspired by their love of cookies, among other things. 😉

A Brief History of Edible Cookie Dough

For anyone who has ever licked the spoon while making cookies, or eaten so much dough there is none left to bake, edible cookie dough is a dream come true. This delicious treat has become a favorite among people of all ages, but how did it become so popular? 

Let’s take a look at the humble beginnings of edible cookie dough and find out.

The first recorded instance of edible cookie dough can be traced back to the early 1800s, when recipes for “eatable cake-mixes” began appearing in English cookbooks. These recipes generally called for uncooked eggs, which poses a food safety risk, so they were not particularly popular. It wasn’t until the late 1990s that edible cookie dough really started to gain traction. The original recipe quickly became a hit with home cooks looking for an easy and delicious way to enjoy their cookie dough without having to bake it first. 

In the years since, edible cookie dough has continued to grow in popularity. What was once found as an inclusion in ice cream can now be found in all kinds of sweet treats.  Dozens of companies now sell premade versions of the treat itself, including us with our Dible Dough edible cookie dough bars.

Why is edible cookie dough so popular? There are several reasons. First, it’s simply delicious. Secondly, we make ours with all natural ingredients, and finally, it’s fun to get guilt-free joy while eating a usually forbidden treat!
