Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip:
When making cookies, be sure to soften your butter first. Butter must be soft enough and cool to the touch, but not too soft that it's already melted.
Make cooking a lot easier and more enjoyable by using good quality silicone baking mats. Not only are silicone mats sturdy and durable. Because they're non-stick, you can also cut your clean-up time in half.
