Tips

Low-Fat Substitution

Low-Fat Substitution

In recipes, replace your oil with applesauce.


Prevent Carry-Over Cooking

Prevent Carry-Over Cooking

To keep chewy cookies from over baking always remove the cookies from the baking pan as soon as possible to prevent continued cooking from the heat of the pan. This is called “carry over cooking”. Duncan Hines says “use your baking parchment sheets or non-stick foil as a trick to remove all the cookies at once”. Carefully pick up the paper or non-stick foil from opposite corners; bottom left and top right. Lift and transfer to a flat surface. Lifting from opposite corners will prevent the paper from folding in the middle which would cause the cookies to fall off of the paper.
