Baking and cooking tips for the holidays and beyond

With the holidays in full swing, here are some baking and cooking tips to help you out:

∎ Give a boxed brownie mix a holiday makeover: Sprinkle chocolate chips over the brownies straight from the oven. Let sit for a few minutes, then spread the melted chocolate. Sprinkle immediately with crushed peppermint candies, pressing to adhere. Cool completely before cutting.

∎ When separating eggs, do them individually before adding the separated white and yolk to the other ingredients. Consider this a quick and easy measure avoid contamination of the bowls due to a yolk accident.

∎ Cool baking sheets in between baking batches of cookies by running cold water over the undersides – placing raw cookie dough on a hot baking sheet will lead to uneven baking.

∎ Store soft and crisp cookies separately as softer cookies will leach moisture from crisp cookies, causing them to become soft, too.
