Oven settings affecting cookie spread

June 06, 2023
I would be interested to get the opinions of the team on how oven settings affect cookie spread during baking.
Can they advise if any adjustments can be made to control / reduce spread and conversely how to improve greater spread.
Another related topic would be on how to achieve a greater spread and create a more rustic or cracked surface on the top of the cookie especially all butter cookies which tend to be smoother on the surface.

many thanks for any help.
