For the best detail in the cookies, its highly important to keep the dough thin. 1/4 inch is best, the thinner the cookie, the less time it takes to spread and bake. removing the baking powder will assist in minimizing the rise in the cookies and significantly reduce spreading and loss of detail.

Here are some more detailed tips and tricks on reducing cookie spreading and minimizing loss of detail with the Sesame Street Elmo Cookie Cutter.
Speaking of liquid, the amount of water in the butter you buy will affect issues of cookie spread. As to finding out which butters have more/less water content, so far I have just had to try out different brands to see what works best. I have not seen information on the butter making mention of h20 content. Generally, I have found that the cheaper the butter, the higher the water content is present in the product. I cant talk about shortening or other types of fat (sorry!), as I do not bake cookies with any other fat than butter.
2. Incorporating Too Much Air:
Cautious one should be in mixing the sugar and butter excessively (Usually the first step of making the dough called creaming). Overmixing the butter and sugar shall cause excessive amounts of air to be integrated. I usually mix mine just until the ingredients come together.
3. 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 greater amount of time to lose detail. Mine are different thicknesses based on my gut feeling, but in general, they are about quarter inch 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 you will have to play around with this a bit to find out the ideal combination.
4. Oven Temperature:
Absolutely ensure your baking equipment actually is at the right temperature by using a thermometer suitable for ovens. In the case ones oven isnt hot enough, the finished baked goods 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.
5. Baking Powder:
Whichever recipe you are utilizing, do not utilize baking powder in the dough. I used to remove it completely only for highly exquisite designs, but I remove it now all the time.
6. Baking Sheets:
I might like my shimmering parchment paper, it appears that cookies baked on a thick baking sheet lose less detail .
7. Correct Measurements:
Making cookies is akin to a scientific disciplineâ¦ If your measurements are not right it can change the final cookies when making use of the Sesame Street Elmo Cookie Cutter. Take for instance, too much sugar will affect the cookie batter. Sugar turns into a puddle when heated and more liquid increases loss of detail. You canât avoid having some sugar after all, cookies are the topic of discussion.
8. Parchment Paper:
Cover your baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat rather than greasing your pan with any type of oil/fat. Cookies seem to expand more when resting on a greasy surface.
9. Chill the Dough:
Once you have made the dough and it has rested for at least an hour, Using the Sesame Street Elmo Cookie Cutter, press out the cookies you want with the cookie cutter and put them back in the fridge for at least an hour or more before baking. Regarding re-rolling dough scraps â I have noticed that the very first batch of dough which has not been been used multiple time, expands at a minimum. Im wondering might it have to do with the gluten in the flour being overworked.
