Agreed. I normally try to put my cookies in the fridge for a bit before bake them. Typically with peanut butter cookies. I'm assuming that while they're chilled they spread slower because the oils melt a tad later. Very good point!

Typically, I don't bake in the daytime, especially in the summer. Most of my baking is done at night and in the winter. I work night shifts, so normally I am sleeping right now...but the landlord is having some fellas painting our doors today.

From my experiences with home baking and working in bakeries, the temperature of the surroundings has a huge effect on how our products turn out. Also the humidity levels.

Welcome to DC, Shelvasha!

I am a good savory cook but have never been greatly successful with baking - made one batch of peanut butter cookies that even the Doberman Pincer wouldn't touch!

That being said, I found a wonderful book called "Got Milk?" and it has become my bible. I've since been lauded for my cookies and, imagine this, I've even enjoyed making them! It teaches technique as well as recipes.

Parchment paper is also my friend - besides the benefit of non-stick, clean up is wonderful!

Best of luck!
