Most of us love cookies: baking them, sampling the cookie dough, eating the finished product, it’s all wonderful.
But, baking the perfect cookie can be a bit of a challenge. There are different types of cookies – Americans usually favour cookies with a soft centre while here in the UK, we are more adept at making harder biscuits.
Not only that, for us amateur bakers, it can be difficult to get the perfect round cookies that look like they belong in a beautiful box wrapped with a ribbon.
Luckily TikTok has got us covered. User @babychrismom, who often posts food-related videos, has revealed how to get your cookies to be a perfect circle.
In the video, she takes the cookies out of the oven, then she takes a coffee cup and puts it over the cookie. She then shakes the cookie so it forms the shape of the cylindrical cup and when she lifts it up, it’s perfectly round.
In a follow-up video, responding to a comment that asked her to use a glass so they could see if it actually worked, the savvy baker uses a clear tankard glass and you can plainly see the cookie being shaped into a circle.

The hack has millions of likes, featuring comments from people saying that they have to try it and that it will help them with baking perfectly shaped cookies in the future.
One fan wrote: ‘The perfectionist in me thanks you.’
Another said, ‘I did this the other day and it was absolutely a great idea, they all became totally uniform and perfectly round.’
Tik Tok user @partyshirt, who often tests viral hacks and trends to see if they actually work, also made a video using the cup and glass cookie hack.
Though they initially encountered some difficulty as their glass was bigger than the cookie (unlike in the original video), the end result was the same perfectly round baked snack.
Be warned though, this hack might not work if your cookies come out quite hard or crisp – as they need to be soft enough to mould to the circular shape.
But you don’t have rack your brain thinking of a recipe, because she also posted her ingredients for such amazing looking cookies
