Double Duty: Make the Best Cookies Ever & Keep Your Kitchen Clean

Written by 

When you think of baking, do you picture warmth and cookies and a family gathered around the kitchen, smiling? You probably do, but there’s another picture that might be far more common in your kitchen: a loose stack of cookies teetering on the table, a burned dozen in the trash can, and flour on every possible surface—and some you thought were impossible.

What if you knew how to not only make some of the best cookies you’ve ever made, but keep your kitchen clean while you’re doing it, with or without a maid service? Too good to be true? Read on to find out!

The Cookie Tips

A quick look online will net you roughly a million cookie tips, give or take a couple, but a few are on every list, and these are the ones that will help you have the best cookies ever!

1. Use the right pan. For cookies, shiny aluminum is the best at evenly browning your cookies. This pan will give you more uniform color across both the top and bottom.

2. Use butter at room temperature. Unless the recipe calls for cold or softened butter, get it to room temperature to make it mix into your batters and dough more consistently.

3. Care for your cookie cutters. If your cookie cutters accumulate dough, the last few are going to look like they had a bit of a rough day. Prevent cookie cutters from sticking by dipping them in flour or confectioner’s sugar between cutting.

4. Store properly in an airtight container for long-lasting freshness.

 

The Cleaning Tips

1. Cover your space. Use wax paper, parchment paper, or aluminum foil to cover the space you work on. Then, when everything cooked, house cleaning your kitchen is as easy as folding up the covering and throwing it in the trash.

2. Clean as you go. The minute you finish with something, put it where it goes. If it’s a dish, put it in a sink full of warm, soapy water.

3. Enlist some help. The crew helping you make—and eat!—the cookies can certainly lend a hand by helping you clean when you’re done.

Best cookies in a kitchen that assures everyone you've been doing the house cleaning? That’s a goal worth working toward!
