Salt will aide in taste while eggs provide structure & stability. Only use high quality butter for the best flavor.

No. 1

Molded Cookies

Gingerbread Snowballs & Chocolate-Gingerbread Thumbprints are classified as molded cookies. Once the dough has been blended, it is shaped before baking. They may be as simple as rolled balls of dough, crescents or other specific shapes. Molded cookies are often times dusted with powdered sugar or filled with chocolate or jam.

No. 2

 Drop Cookies

Classic Chocolate Chunk & Pecan-Oat Double Chip Cookies fall into the drop cookie category that is by far the most popular style as it utilizes the most straightforward technique. Blend the dough & portion it onto prepared sheet pans. The only tool necessary is an average teaspoon or two & if you really want to go all out, a cookie scoop may be used. 

No. 3

Pressed Cookies

Almond Meringue Cookies & Langues-de-Chat are cookie styles that may be categorized under the Pressed Cookie subhead. Once the dough has blended, it may be either portioned into a pastry bag fit with a tip for piping onto prepared sheet pans or placed in an extruder. A cookie press or gun may be fit with numerous discs that portion the dough into all sorts of shapes once pressed.

Rolled Cookies

Gingerbread & sugar cookie dough are examples of the type of cookies classified in this category. Blend the dough, roll it out & cut the shapes. Leavening affects the final shape of the cookies so if you prefer a clean, crisp texture & look, it can be omitted from many recipes as in the case of Classic Sugar Cookies. Baking soda & powder produce puffier shapes & a soft or cake-like texture as found in Buttermilk Gingerbread Cookies.

No. 5

Bar Cookies

Classic Lemon Bars & Bourbon Brookies are two of the most popular flavors of bar cookies. Dough or crust is prepared & pressed into pans. If there is a filling, it is then blended & poured over the top & baked. Bar cookies may be cut into all sorts of shapes ranging from squares & rectangles to diamonds once baked.

No. 6

Refrigerator Cookies

Pistachio Butter Cookies are an example of this classic cookie style. Refrigerator or icebox cookies are some of the most simple to prepare & they may be stored in the freezer to bake at a later date. Once the dough has been blended, it is shaped into logs using plastic wrap. They are then chilled to firm the dough. Slicing & baking is all that is needed to make a lovely batch of cookies.
