For the best detail in the cookies, its highly important to keep the cookie 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 butter and sugar in the beginning of the recipe known by its more technical name creaming, it is also really important to not mix it too long as overdoing it will cause undesirable air to be incorporated.

Here are some more detailed tips and tricks on reducing cookie spreading and minimizing loss of detail with the Sesame Street Grouch Cookie Cutter.
1. Cookie Thickness:
How substantial is the cookie you make? More substantial they are, it takes lengthier amounts of time 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, however most of the time, they are about 3/4 cm â 1cm thick. If you would like a thicker cookie, 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.
2. Baking Powder:
Whichever recipe your using, one should not utilize baking powder with the cookie dough. I used to remove it completely only for more detailed cookies, now I omit it all the time.
Speaking of liquid, the h20 thats inside the butter purchase shall dramatically affect issues of cookie spread. As to finding out which products have minimal H20, I only try out different brands to see what works best. I have not seen information on the butter making mention of h20 content. Generally, In my experiences less expensive butter is, the higher the water content seems to be. I cant talk about shortening or other types of fat (apologies!), as I do not bake cookies with any other fat than butter.
4. Baking Sheets:
I might like my shimmering parchment paper, it appears that baking a cookie on substantial parchment paper lose less detail than on a thin one.
5. Chill the Dough:
Once you have made the dough and not agitating it at a minimum of 60 minutes, Using the Sesame Street Grouch Cookie Cutter, press out the cookies you want with the cookie cutter and shove them in the refridgerator 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 not been been used multiple time, spreads the least, even if I have chilled them for minimum one hour. Im wondering if it has something to do with the gluten in the flour being overworked.
6. Parchment Paper:
Cover your baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat instead of greasing your pan with any type of oil/fat. Baked goods seem to spread out more on buttery/greasy slippery areas.
7. Incorporating Too Much Air:
Be careful not to mix the butter and sugar too long (Normally the initial part of a recipe called creaming). Overmixing the butter and sugar will cause too much air to be incorporated. I usually mix mine just until the ingredients come together.
8. Oven Temperature:
Check to make sure your oven actually is at the right temperature by using an ovensafe thermometer. If your oven isnt high enough in temperature, the cookies dont set quick enough, 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 affect cookie spreadage.
9. Correct Measurements:
Baking is like a scienceâ¦ If your measurements are not right might it dramatically affect the whole recipe when making use of the Sesame Street Grouch Cookie Cutter. For example, too much sugar will affect 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, cookies are the topic of discussion.
