-- Marnie Zahn Resnick
is the creator of Annie's Euro American Bakery, which is now one of the foremost distributors of handmade desserts in the country. Though she sold her ownership stake of the business in 2011, she still remains actively involved as the territory manager in Florida. Now, Zahn Resnick is issuing comment on a new article that describes how to take traditional baked goods to the next level.
Much like other types of cooking, successful baking is all about the ingredients. A baker who relies on high quality butter, eggs, and vanilla will create much more delicious results than someone who opts for the cheapest version of all of these products. Instead of grabbing an inexpensive bag of chocolate, a chef who is hoping to increase the "wow" factor of their baked items should purchase particularly rich chocolate. The ingredients included during the baking process truly make a difference.
When it is time to make cookies, experienced chefs know to chill the cookie dough in the refrigerator prior to preparing it. This increases the body in the finished product, and leaves cookies tasting better and fuller. This requires some planning though, as dough must set at least one hour in the refrigerator. For even more impressive results, a baker should consider storing the dough in the refrigerator overnight before getting to work.
Cookies that come from the grocery store or a local bakery are always uniform in size and shape, thus making the appearance more professional. For those who are truly focused on all aspects of their products, Marnie Zahn Resnick suggests using an ice cream scoop when it comes time to distribute the dough on a baking sheet. This ensures that each cookie looks the same as the others, thus increasing the levels of professionalism associated with the product.
The pan that is selected for baking also has a major impact on the final result. Depending on the material that the pan is made of, brownies will bake differently, and may even cook unevenly. This is also applicable when selecting a cookie sheet. For the best results, select a light-colored, non-insulated cookie sheet without sides.
Baking time for brownies varies depending on whether the pan is made of glass or metal. To avoid burning the baked goods, check brownies early on to make sure that they are not burning due to this variable. Overbaking can happen quickly, so a vigilant eye is necessary in order to ensure culinary success.
"When it comes to baking, the details matter. Someone who is hoping to create delicious baked goods should focus on high-quality ingredients, and should understand how baking times vary. Even just a few minutes can mean the difference between moist, delicious cookies or dry items that are less than enjoyable," states Marnie Zahn Resnick.
