For the most detail in the cookies, its highly important to keep the dough thin. 1/4 inch is best, the thinner the cookie, it takes less time to spread and bake.Also, removing the baking powder will help eliminate the rise in the cookies and significantly reduce spreading and loss of detail. When mixing the sugar and butter in the first part of the recipe known as creaming, it is pretty important to not mix it for too long as overmixing will cause too much air to be incorporated.
When utilizing the stamp, ensure to utilize the stamper before the cutter. This will make for the best detail in the cookie after baked.

Here are some more detailed tips and tricks on reducing cookie spreading and minimizing loss of detail with the Red Bird Luke Skywalker Cookie Cutter.
1. Oven Temperature:
Absolutely ensure your oven really is in the correct degrees fahrenheit by utilizing an ovensafe thermometer. In the case ones oven is not hot enough, the cookies do not quickly enough bake, and the cookies have more time to spread. Also looking inside ones oven to observe the progress of the cookies, will cause a loss of temperature and increase spreading.
2. Baking Powder:
Whichever recipe you are utilizing, do not use baking powder in the dough. I used to remove it completely exclusively for more detailed cookies, but I remove it now all the time.
3. Correct Measurements:
Making cookies is akin to a scientific disciplineâ¦ In case ones measuring is not right might it dramatically affect the final cookies when making use of the Red Bird Luke Skywalker Cookie Cutter. For example, too much sugar will affect the cookie batter. Sugar turns into a puddle when heated and more liquid causes spreading. You canât avoid having some sugar after all, we are talking about cookies.
4. Incorporating Too Much Air:
Be careful not to mix the butter and sugar too long (Usually the first step of making the dough called creaming). Overmixing the butter and sugar shall cause excessive amounts of air to be integrated. Normally I stir them all together right upto the point they are combined.
5. Cookie Thickness:
How substantial is the cookie you make? More substantial they are, the longer it takes for the heat in your oven to assist the baked goods in baking, and the more time they have to spread. Mine are different thicknesses based on my gut feeling, but in general, they are about 3/4 cm â 1cm thick. If one prefers a more substantial one, try raising the temperature of your oven a few degrees to bake them. Each oven and recipe are different, so try out different settings and see what works best.
6. Chill the Dough:
after one has prepared the cookie batter and not agitating it at a minimum of 60 minutes, Using the Red Bird Luke Skywalker Cookie Cutter, cut your cookie shapes out and shove them in the refridgerator for at least an hour or more before baking. In regards to rolling again left over dough â I have noticed that the very first batch of dough which has only been rolled once, spreads the least, even if I have chilled them for minimum one hour. Im wondering might it have to do with the gluten in the flour being overworked.
7. Baking Sheets:
It may be that I simply like my shiny, new baking sheets, it appears that baking a cookie on substantial parchment paper lose less detail .
Talking about liquidness, the h20 thats inside the butter you buy will affect the spreading factor. As to finding out which butters have more/less water content, I only try out competing butters to figure out the creme de la creme. I have not found any indication on packaging mentioning percent of water. Generally, I have found that the cheaper the butter, the higher the water content is present in the product. I cant talk about margarine or other types of fat (apologies!), butter is my mainstay friend in the field of baking.
9. Parchment Paper:
Cover your cookie sheet with wax paper rather than applying any amount of fat and/or oil. Cookies seem to expand more when resting on a greasy surface.
