Hi guys,


Bumping this thread as I had dreams last night, first about some brooch moulds I made yesterday and then I woke up, went back to sleep and dreamt about cookies and so today I'm on a sugar cookie mission.


I have a question for those of you who use the sweetopia recipe, or chill then cut out cookies and then go on to refrigerate or freeze further before baking.. when they are ready to be baked, do you use the cold baking sheet that has chilled or do you transfer to a room temp tray?


Only had the though as sweetopias tips are saying essentially the longer it takes for the cookie to set the more opportunity there is for spreading. Would this be the same if I put the cold baking sheet directly into the oven?

I chill my cookies on the pans so both are cold before I put them in the oven and they don't really spread. Now if I don't chill the cookies, they spread into a big blob, but it's hot where I live.

I should be sleeping Zzzz
