Cookies Not Spreading When Baking


My cookies are not spreading at all. What is going on? This just started happening in the last year. Can any one help me?

You didn't mention the cookie recipe you were baking. Spoon out teaspoonfuls on your baking sheet, and press cookie dough with the back of a spatula.

Or maybe you need a new can of baking powder, which is a leavening agent. (12/05/2007)

Check your oven temp with an oven thermometer! Do not trust the dial! Calibrate it if possible (12/05/2007)

Could it be you were using regular flour not self-rising? (12/07/2007)

Have you moved from a different altitude. Some cake mixes tell you to use less flour at a certain altitude. Have you gone from cane sugar to beet sugar. May make a difference too. (12/07/2007)

Something must have changed -- the type of flour you are using? The shortening or butter or margarine or oil? Are you using the same recipes you have always used? Perhaps if it is a new recipe, it is not supposed to spread out, but needs to be flattened with a fork or a sugared glass or a spatula as others have mentioned. (12/07/2007)

Just curious what type of margarine you were using when you were having your cookies "spread out". On a cooking website once about a year ago I read that a chef said not to use Imperial Margarine as it caused flat cookies. Wondering if that is the effect you are going for? I quit using Imperial , I use Blue Bonnet and have better cookies I think, but not what I call "spread out". (12/08/2007)
