These cookies, or bars, are baked in a pan, not on a cookie sheet.
When done, these bars are cut into squares, or diamond shapes by cutting them in the pan in which they were baked.
The yield of bar cookies depends on the size of the pan and the size of the desired serving.
Test cake like bars for doneness with a wooden pick.
Fudge like bars are done when a slight imprint remains after touching lightly.
Cookie bars should be cooled before frosting.
Drop cookies are baked on a cookie sheet by dropping prepared dough onto the cookie sheet, allowing ample room for the cookies to spread during baking.
You can prevent excess spreading of cookies by chilling dough, mounding dough when dropping it, and baking it at the correct temperature (specified in the recipe).
Cool baked cookies on wire racks. When storing drop cookies, do not mix soft style cookies with crisp style cookies, or the crisp variety will become soft.
Cookies can be shaped by being flattened with the bottom of a glass that has been dipped in sugar, with the tines of a fork, or with your thumb. Certain dough can be shaped by putting it through a purchased cookie press.
The Raspberry Cookie Recipes and Raspberry Bar Recipes which are listed above include rolled cookies.
For rolled cookies, roll a small amount of dough at a time, keeping the rest of the dough chilled in the fridge. If the dough is not chilled, it uses up too much flour when rolling it out, which in turn causes the cookies to be tough.
If the dough starts to stick to the rolling pin rub flour over the rolling pin.
When rolling cookie dough roll from the centre to the edge, as for piecrusts.
When using a cookie cutter, lightly flour the cutter and start cutting at the edge of the dough and work toward the centre.
Try not to reroll the dough excessively, as this also causes the cookies to have a tough texture.
