I am confused! Do you put chilled cut-out cookie dough on room temp cookie sheets then bake or chill the cut-out cookie dough on the cookie sheet then bake it with the cookie sheet chilled? Does one work better than the other to keep them from spreading?
chill the cut out cookie dough on the cookie sheet and then pop the whole thing in the oven. (I actually put the sheet in the freezer, not the refrigerator)
I use a room temperature sheet with a chilled silicone mat with frozen cut-out cookies
I find that chilling the cookies on the sheet is a great hint! Works great for me!
When I cut my cookies I put them on the cookie sheet, then stick the whole thing in the fridge or freezer - it works great and there's less transferring of the cookies, which means less time.
Thanks much! It sure would save a lot of time & caution on transfering the cut-outs. Finding shorter ways to do things with great results is always a plus!!
