For the best detail in the cookies, its important to keep the dough thin. 1/4 inch is best, the thinner the cookie, it takes less time to bake and spread.Also, eliminating the baking powder will help minimize the rise in the cookies and help eliminate spreading and loss of detail. When mixing the sugar and butter in the first part of the recipe also known as creaming, it is important to not mix it too long as mixing it for too long will cause undesirable air to be incorporated.
When utilizing the stamp, please make sure to utilize the stamp before the cookie cutter. This will make for the highest level of detail in the finished product.

Here are some more detailed tips and tricks on reducing cookie spreading and minimizing loss of detail with the Sesame Street Ernie Cookie Cutter.
1. Baking Sheets:
It may be that I simply like my shiny, new baking sheets, but it seems to me that cookies baked on a thick baking sheet lose less detail .
2. Baking Powder:
Whichever recipe you are utilizing, do not use baking powder in the dough. In the past I would take it out exclusively for more detailed cookies, but I remove it now all the time.
3. Parchment Paper:
Cover your baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat rather than greasing your pan with any type of oil/fat. Baked goods seem to spread out more on buttery/greasy slippery areas.
4. Correct Measurements:
Baking is like a scienceâ¦ If your measurements are off it can change the whole recipe when making use of the Sesame Street Ernie Cookie Cutter. Take for instance, too much sugar changes your dough. Canesugar(sugar) becomes liquid when melted and greater amounts of melted sugar increases loss of detail. You must have some canesugar(sugar) after all, we are talking about cookies.
5. 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). excessively mixing the sugar and butter shall cause excessive amounts of air to be integrated. Normally I stir them all together right upto the point they are combined.
6. 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 3/4 cm â 1cm thick. If one prefers a more substantial one, attempt increasing the degrees of your oven a couple degrees. Each oven and recipe are different, so try out different settings to find out the ideal combination.
Talking about liquidness, the h20 thats inside the butter you buy shall dramatically affect issues of cookie spread. As to finding out which butters have more/less water content, I only experiment with 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. Shall not speak of margarine or other types of fat (sorry!), as I do not bake cookies with any other fat than butter.
8. Oven Temperature:
Absolutely ensure your oven actually is at the right temperature by using an ovensafe thermometer. If your oven isnt hot enough, the cookies dont quickly enough bake, and the cookies have more time to spread. Also remember that looking inside ones oven to observe the progress of the cookies, will cause a loss of temperature and increase spreading.
9. Chill the Dough:
after one has prepared the cookie batter and not agitating it at a minimum of 60 minutes, Using the Sesame Street Ernie 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 previous to sticking them in the oven. In regards to rolling again left over dough â I have noticed the initial cookie batter which has only been rolled once, expands at a minimum, even if I have chilled them for minimum one hour. Im wondering if it has something to do with the gluten being overused in the batter.
