What Are the 6 Types of Cookies?
There are six types of cookies that people usually make around the holidays. These types are classified based on how the dough is handled to shape each cookie. The types of cookies include:
- Drop cookies
- Bar cookies
- Rolled cookies
- Refrigerator cookies
- Pressed cookies
- Molded cookies
Drop cookies are made from soft dough and are dropped onto a cookie sheet for baking.
Baked in a shallow pan, bar cookies are cut into bars or squares before serving.
Rolled cookies are made from chilled dough that is rolled and cut into shapes with cookie cutters.
Dough is rolled into long symmetrical rolls and wrapped in wax paper or foil and then chilled. This form of sugar cookie is chilled after being decorated.
When you force dough through a cookie press onto a baking sheet, you are making pressed cookies.
Molded cookies are molded by hand, allowing you to add in ingredients like chopped nuts and to make designs on the outside with a glass or a fork.
What is the Trick to Sugar Cookies?
Sugar cookies are pretty simple to make but there are some tricks to making the perfect sugar cookies:
- The more moisture your sugar cookie retains, the chewier the cookie will turn out.
- Brown sugar can react well with baking soda in a recipe, helping the cookies to rise.
- Too much sugar or butter can make sugar cookies spread out too thin on the pan and lose their shape.
- Bake your cookies when the dough is really cold.
- When you don’t have the time, you can buy pre-packaged rolls of sugar cookie dough that became popular in the grocery stores in the 1950s and are still sold in stores today!
