Foolproof Baking Tips

Foolproof Baking Tips
Gabriele Stabile

Baking can be intimidating. Exacting measurements, yeast (it’s alive!), frosting, creaming properly… It can be a little stressful, especially if the results aren't what you hoped for. But baking shouldn’t be viewed this way. As Christina Tosi of Momofuku Milk Bar puts it, “You’re baking because it’s something that brings you joy and pleasure. Just keep your cool.” 

While that might be easy for someone who is one of the most loved bakers in New York City to say, it will soon be the mantra you share with your newbie baking friends after following Tosi’s helpful tips below.

The cookie and dessert queen shares some of her delectable, buttery, and insanely addicting recipes from her new cookbook, Momofuku Milk Bar, plus advice on how to be a better baker (and it doesn’t involve going to culinary school).

Check out what she has to say in the slideshow and learn more by watching her video below for even more insider tips.
