For the best detail in the cookies, its important to keep the cookie dough thin. 1/4 inch is best, the thinner the cookie, the less time it takes to spread and bake. eliminating the baking powder will assist in minimizing the rise in the cookies and reduce spreading and loss of detail. When mixing the sugar and butter in the beginning of the recipe also known as creaming, it is pretty important to not mix it for too long as overmixing 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 TMNT Turtle Shell Cookie Cutter.
1. Baking Powder:
Whichever recipe you are utilizing, one should not utilize baking powder in the dough. I used to remove it completely only for highly exquisite designs, now I omit it all the time.
2. Parchment Paper:
Cover your baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat instead of applying any amount of fat and/or oil. Baked goods appear like they spread out more on buttery/greasy slippery areas.
3. Baking Sheets:
I might like my shimmering parchment paper, but it seems to me that cookies baked on a thick baking sheet seem to spread less than on a thin one.
4. 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. Normally I mix mine just until the ingredients come together.
5. 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 vary depending on how thick I feel like making them, however most of the time, they are about 3/4 cm â 1cm thick. If you would like a thicker cookie, attempt increasing the degrees 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 it has rested for at least an hour, Using the TMNT Turtle Shell 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 it appears that the very first batch of dough which has only been rolled once, expands at a minimum. Pondering I am might it have to do with the gluten in the flour being overworked.
7. Correct Measurements:
Baking is like a scienceâ¦ If your measurements are off might it dramatically affect the final cookies when making use of the TMNT Turtle Shell Cookie Cutter. Take for instance, too much sugar will affect the cookie batter. Sugar turns into a puddle when heated and greater amounts of melted sugar increases loss of detail. You must have some canesugar(sugar) after all, cookies are the topic of discussion.
Talking about liquidness, the amount of water in the butter purchase will affect the spreading factor. As for how to know which products have minimal H20, I only try out competing butters to see what works best. I have not seen information on the butter making mention of h20 content. I have found that less expensive butter is, the higher the water content seems to be. Shall not speak of shortening or other types of fat (sorry!), as I do not bake cookies with any other fat than butter.
9. Oven Temperature:
Check to make sure your oven really is at the right temperature by using a thermometer suitable for ovens. If your oven is not hot enough, the cookies dont set quick enough, and the cookies lose more detail. Also remember that opening your oven up to peek on the stage of baking the cookies are in, will make the oven lose heat and increase spreading.
