Baking Tips from the Master Baker Herself Crystal is not only a master of creating delicious cookies but also generous in sharing her baking expertise. She swears by two key tips for achieving the perfect cookie texture:
Softness with Cornstarch: For those who prefer their cookies soft and tender, Crystal recommends adding a touch of cornstarch to the dough. This simple addition can transform ordinary cookies into melt-in-your-mouth delights.
Chewiness through Under-Baking: To achieve that coveted chewy texture, Crystal suggests slightly under-baking the cookies. This technique retains moisture and ensures a satisfying, chewy bite.
Favorite Cookie Memory: Baking for Her Daughter Among the cherished memories that baking brings, Crystal's favorite revolves around her daughter and creating moments of joy that will be treasured forever.

With the Carrot Cake Cookies set to make an appearance and the potential addition of the White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies, attendees are in for a delightful cookie experience.
