Cookies can be fried and fried cookies are delicious, although baking is more common.

Why are cookies called cookies when you bake them?

How should I bake my cookies?

All ovens have hot spots, and if you bake often enough you’ll soon learn which cookies on the baking sheet brown the fastest. To make sure they all bake evenly, rotate the baking sheet from front to back halfway through the baking time.
What happens when you bake cookies?
The cookie starts to rise as the vapors push through the dough. Eventually, the baking soda or powder starts to break down into carbon dioxide gas, which raise up the cookie farther. All these gases leave little holes in the maturing cookie, which makes it light and flaky.

How would you describe a good cookie?
Crisp, golden brown, with nuts

How do I know if my cookies are baked?

Chocolate chip cookies are done when they have a firm golden edge or bottom and appear slightly set on top. If the edges become dark brown, they are overbaked. If edges aren’t golden and tops are soft and shiny, bake a little longer.
At what temperature should cookies be baked?
350° is the standard temp for a cookie, and it’s a great one. Your cookies will bake evenly and the outside will be done at the same time as the inside. Baking at 325° also results in an evenly baked cookie, but the slower cooking will help yield a chewier cookie. The outsides will be a little softer, too.

Bake at 375 degrees F until golden and crunchy on the outside, and chewy on the inside, 10 to 12 minutes. For super-chewy cookies: Substitute cake flour for all-purpose flour.
How do you keep cookies from spreading when baking?
Use a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Coating your baking sheet with nonstick spray or butter creates an overly greasy foundation, causing the cookies to spread. I always recommend a silicone baking mat because they grip onto the bottom of your cookie dough, preventing the cookies from spreading too much.
Can you open the oven while baking cookies?
Even though it’s tempting, Cowan said, you should avoid checking on your cookies by opening the oven door. “Opening the oven door allows the heat to escape, which can affect how your cookies bake. If you want to check on your cookies while they bake, try to stick with using the oven light,” she told Insider.
What makes cookies chewy vs cakey?
Brown sugar—particularly dark brown sugar—makes a cookie chewy; white sugar makes it crispy. If your recipe calls for all white sugar and you want a fudgier result, try swapping out some of the white sugar for brown (go for half and half and adjust from there).
How long do I keep cookies in the oven?
Bake until the cookies are lightly browned and no longer wet in the center, 6 to 8 minutes; if baking more than one pan at a time, switch pan positions halfway through baking. (Take the cookies out of the oven 1 or 2 minutes before the cookies are cooked, as they will continue to cook on the baking pans.)
