This is the easiest kind of cookie to make and the common one to make for the first experience. Dropped Cookie are made by dropping a teaspoon of cookie dough onto a cookie sheet. You need to give space between cookie dough because the cookie dough will be spreading while baked. Dropped Cookie examples are Chocolate Chip Cookie and Oatmeal Cookie.
Molded Cookie usually molded into balls or wreaths before baking. The dough itself is stiffer than the dropped cookie. You need to mold it by yourself and keep your fingers or utensils lightly dusted with flour to keep the dough from sticking. The examples of molded cookie are Peanut Butter Cookie, Almond Crescent, and Biscotti.
Rolled Cookie/Cutout Cookie
Rolled Cookie dough usually is stiffer and needs to be chilled first before you use it. After the dough is chilled, roll out and cut into shapes with a cookie cutter or with a knife. This kind of cookie is really fun to eat because of the unlimited variety of shapes. The Rolled Cookie example is Gingerbread.
Pressed Cookie dough should be soft but firm enough to hold the cookie’s shape. If your dough is too soft, put it in the refrigerator to make it stiffer. If the dough is too stiff, add an egg yolk to make it softer. You should have the perfect dough to make this. Then you put your dough into a cookie press (cookie gun) or pastry tube into various decorative shapes. Pressed Cookie example is Spritz Cookie.
