10 Reasons Why Your Cookies Aren’t Perfect

Chocolate Jubilee Cookies

Have you ever noticed that when you use the same cookie recipe that your mother uses, the cookies never turn out quite the same?  Quite frankly, mine don’t.  It’s SO frustrating!  I have the same recipe I use all the time and darn it if it doesn’t turn out differently 8 out of 10 times!

I’ve been trying to figure out why, and tonight I came across Ashley & Sierra’s post over at The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie.


1.  This cookie is done just right. It is pictured to compare with the rest.
2.  This dough was not refrigerated.  It is still good but a little flatter than it should be.
3.  This dough contained too much flour and did not spread much at all. It is interesting to note that the dough looked identical to the correct dough, but was much stiffer and drier.
4.  This dough had too little flour.  It spread too much and didn’t bake evenly.

Well, I’m certainly not going to keep this precious information from you!  So, get your pens or ipads ready and take notes…this is absolutely beautiful!
