The thick cookies are made when leaving a small footprint when pressing its surface, while the thinner or crunchy ones are made when they are firm to the touch and have slightly light brown edges.
Let the cookies cool completely before storing them , otherwise the condensation accumulates, the cookies will be soaked and will not be crispy.
The Secrets Of The Mass To Make Perfect Homemade Cookies
How To Bake Perfect Homemade Cookies:
1. The oven must be preheated to the temperature indicated by the recipe, with heat up and down and no fan.
2. We must place the tray halfway up or in the slot that is immediately below the central, never below the whole or above the whole.
3. We must bear in mind that no two ovens are the same , so the first time we bake a recipe we must be vigilant even before the time marked by the recipe.
4. Cookies should still be soft when we remove them from the oven and let them cool completely in a rack. During the cooling they will harden, so if we wait until they are hard in the oven, when they cool they will end up being stones.
