Cookies are a traditional staple of the Christmas holiday. Whether a seasoned baker or beginner in the kitchen, many holiday bakers need help achieving the perfect consistency. The expert bakers and bloggers at Hershey's Cookie Headquarters say everyone can achieve baking bliss with a little help.

To prevent cookies from becoming hard and tough, avoid adding more flour than necessary to the cookie dough or batter. Taking cookies out of the oven 1 to 2 minutes early may also help keep them soft after they cool.

To avoid cookies that are too flat, try refrigerating the cookie dough for at least 30 minutes before scooping them on the tray. This will keep the dough from spreading too much when placed in a hot oven.
