When you are cooking for one or two, you often don't want to make a large batch of cookies. Sure you can keep the extra cookies in a cookie jar but really, who wants to eat the same cookies for weeks?

Small Batch Christmas Cookie Recipes
- Measure flour correctly. If you don't have a scale, you can properly measure flour by using a spoon to fluff the flour in the container, then spoon the flour into a measuring cup and slightly overfill. Use the back of a knife or other straight edged utensil to level the flour across the cup. Do not scoop the flour. When you scoop, the flour gets packed too tightly and you will end up with more flour than the recipe calls for.
- Use a baking mat or parchment paper to line your cookie sheet. I don't recommend coating your baking sheet with a butter or oil spray because it creates an overly greasy sheet which will make your cookies spread.
Frequently Asked Questions
The best way to soften your butter is to put it out on the kitchen counter for a half hour before you want to use it. Another way to quickly soften butter is to put the cold butter in the microwave for 10 to 15 seconds. If you use this method, be sure to watch carefully - you don't want the butter to melt at all.
