To Prevent Sticking, Flour Your Fork While Pressing Cookies

Simple Tip: Flour Fork When Pressing Cookies

Flour Fork When Pressing CookiesNext time you whip together a batch of peanut butter, shortbread, or bacon cookies, consider using your fork to add some crisscross detail.

When pressing cookies, be sure to dip the fork in a shallow pan of flour in between takes; this'll prevent your utensil from sticking to the dough.
