Mix up your mix ins – feel free to mix up the mix ins you are adding. We added some peanut butter baking chips to our batch one time and they tasted like Reese’s cookies. YUM!
Freeze for later – you can bake up all the cookies and freeze some for later, or scoop cookie dough balls and freeze those. Bake as usual when you want a fresh cookie. Just add about 3-4 minutes to the baking time.
Use parchment paper – I love using parchment paper for baking cookies because it requires less clean up and it allows you to slide the cookies off the hot pan onto a cooling rack right away. This makes sure the cookies don’t overcook on the bottoms as they continue to cool.
