Thick vs. Thin Cookies: You Choose | Anita's Organic Mill

Do you like thick, chewy cookies or do you prefer thin, crispier cookies? Here are a few things you can do to get your ideal cookie.

Thicker cookie (less spread):

  • Cream the butter and sugar for less time
  • Use coarser sugar
  • Keep the dough cold
  • Use more flour
  • Use less baking powder/soda

Thinner cookie (more spread):

  • Use 50% cake and pastry flour
  • Cream the butter and sugar longer
  • Use finer sugar
  • Bake at a lower temperature
