When baking homemade cookie recipes from scratch, you always want to be sure and add the ingredients exactly as they are called for. Baking is a science and if you don't add the right amount and type of ingredients your easy cookies recipe may not turn out as intended. For this easy cookie recipe, it calls for room temperature butter, and that is exactly how the butter should be, room temperature. If a baking recipe calls for room temperature ingredients, you want to use room temperature baking ingredients. There is no way around this simple fact, and if you use cold butter or cold eggs in the recipe when they should have been room temperature, your recipe idea most likely will not live up to its full potential. And it most certainly won’t taste the way that the recipe should. When at room temperature, ingredients like eggs, butter, and other dairy ingredients form an emulsion which helps to trap air. While baking in the oven, all that trapped air in the mix expands and produces a fluffy baked good. For example, if you are making a light-textured cake recipe or a tender cupcake recipe. Room temperature ingredients bond together very easily because they are warmer, helping to create a seamless and evenly textured batter. A smooth batter means a uniformly textured baked good. Cold ingredients will not properly incorporate together as easily, or maybe not at all. This results in a clumpy frosting recipe, chunky cheesecake, dense cookies, and muffins.
The sugar you use in your easy bake cookie recipe ideas also makes a difference in the way your homemade cookie recipes from scratch turn out. Aside from the obvious sweetness, sugar is the basic building block of any cookie dough, helping to establish the overall pH. How the sugar combines with other ingredients will help to determine the cookie's overall volume and density. Sugar also helps attract water from the dough, which interferes with the gluten formation, the protein coagulation, and the gelatinization of starch. A cookie fact is that white sugar will help make cookies thin and crisp, while brown sugar will help your easy cookie recipe be more tall and moist. The mixture of these two sugars helps to provides a good balance. One advantage that brown sugar has over white sugar is that it caramelizes more readily, which leads to more intense flavor in homemade cookie recipes from scratch. So the next time you think about substituting or switching out ingredients in your easy bake cookies recipe remembers that just like science when you change the variables the end results will also change. And sometimes that might be just the thing you are going for, while other times maybe not so much.
