How long does it take to bake cookies at 350?

  • Bake until cookies are golden around the edges and soft in the center.
  • In a preheated oven, on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet this is typically 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Be sure to stock the kitchen with helpful tools like this food scale, these measuring cups and a Kitchen Aid mixer.

What makes cookies chewy or crispy?

  • White sugar makes cookies crispier while brown sugar makes them fluffier.
  • Using or adding egg yolks can lead to a more moist, chewy cookie.

What is the secret to soft cookies?

  • Underbaking the cookies is the secret to softness. Do not overbake!
  • You can also use cornstarch in the dough to add softness and thickness like these Snickerdoodle Cookies.

Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year and mostly because I am a huge fan of baking all. the. things! These peppermint cookies are one of my favs because they are super easy to make and combine two of my favorite festive ingredients, white chocolate and peppermint candy.

We also love these salted caramel turtle cookies, these peppermint dipped chocolate cookies and these egg nog cookies.
