    Here are some tips to follow to make the perfect cookie:

    • When the recipe calls for room temperature butter, make sure it is actually room temperature.
    • Take your butter out an hour or more before you’re ready to start baking.
    • Always use the full amount of salt it calls for in your recipe. The salt balances out the sweetness and brings out the chocolate and peanut butter flavors even more.
    • Baking soda helps with how much your cookie will rise while baking.

    • Follow the times in the instructions, they’re there for a reason!
    • Even if your cookie doesn’t feel fully baked, it will harden as it cools.
    • Be sure to let them cool completely so they don’t melt the filling!
