Tis the season to do lots of baking, both for ourselves and others, and as we deliver the baked goods season after holiday season we pick up a few tricks to speed things up and ensure a perfect bake.

Chill the dough for a bit and you'll end up with thicker cookies that are easier to form into equal sized scoops before baking.

You should also put your cut sugar cookies and pie crusts in the freezer for a bit before baking them, which will help them retain their shape since the butter won't melt as fast.

Coat chips and fruit bits in flour before adding them to the mix and they'll stay put while baking.

And if you're looking for a new flavor sensation that flows with the old standards try using vanilla bean paste instead of vanilla extract.

Except, you know, the part where it tastes like caramel.
