Creaming Butter and Sugar
Creaming butter or shortening with sugar adds air to the batter, increasing volume to help better mix in the flour.
Chewy vs. Crisp Cookies

Allowing for Spreading
Don’t store chewy and crisp cookies in the same container – your crisp ones will soften.
Always let cookies cool, and icing harden (if using) before storing.
