TIP OF THE DAY: Baking Tips From The American Egg Board

People who love to bake love the holidays. And then there are those once-a-year-bakers who only pull out the mixing bowl in November and December.

No matter which end of the spectrum you’re on, here are some tips from the American Egg Board:

TIP #1: COOKIES. If you’re making molded cookies (bells, candy canes, stars, wreaths, etc.), make sure they hold their shape. Chill the dough before cutting your cookies into shapes, and put them on a baking sheet that has been cooled in the freezer for a few minutes beforehand. This will ensure that the cookies hold their shape when baking. (Check out the different types of cookies.)

TIP #2: COOKIES & CAKES. Put a spin on your favorite classic recipes. Add dried cranberries or cherries, crushed candy canes, mint chips, toffee chips or other season-inspired mix-ins. Here’s our recipe for Cranberry or Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies with white chocolate chips.

TIP #3: GLUTEN FREE OPTIONS. Make a flourless chocolate cake. Moist and fudgy, it’s always a hit. Here’s a recipe for a delicious chocolate-orange flourless cake from the American Egg Board.

TIP #4: SOUFFLÉS. Make sure your special soufflé doesn’t turn into a souf-flop. Separate whites from yolks carefully before beating and ensure that no hint of yolk gets into the whites. Then let the whites stand for a few minutes; they whip up better at room temperature.

TIP #5: GIFTS. Homemade baked goods are always a popular gift. These days, few people need another “incidental” gift item—candle, mug, refrigerator magnet, water bottle, whatever. Your homemade cookies are much more welcome.
