Tips & Inspirations

Pour 2-3 cups of sugar into a sealable container. Combine with the zest of one lemon, shake well and store. Lemon infused sugar can be used immediately or kept for months, just like regular sugar.

Keep brown sugar soft by adding a couple of marshmallows to the bag.

To make crystallized honey liquid again make it liquid again, place the honey jar in a container that allows water to move around it freely. Run under a hot water tap (shaking occasionally) until the crystals have melted.

For a uniform bake, always scoop and bake the same size cookie. This will ensure your cookies cooked to just the correct doneness every time.
