Most of the time my cookies are fine. But once in awhile they spread out more than usual.... any reason why?
Hi If you freeze your cookie dough after you cut your shape out for aprox 10-15 min them bake that should help
Every once in a while that happens to me too. The last tray of cookies that I baked last week spread more than the others, and they were the most frozen, so it's a mystery!
Is it different recipes? Cookies with butter tend to spread more than cookies with shortening.
I've had some on the same baking pan spread ..... The butter wasn't mixed in very well. So now I've shown my girls how to watch for pieces of unmixed butter in the dough when they are scooping it up.
I should have mentioned the NFSC. I use unsalted butter and I think maybe it is because sometimes I don't put them in the fridge before I bake. Most of the time I cut them out and they are in the fridge for at least 1/2 before I bake them.
