Traditional baking recipes almost always require a few eggs, but did you know that there’s a common egg mistake many people make that affects the baking result? Getting the wrong number of eggs can definitely mess up your effort, but we’re talking about something else today. The good news is that it’s very easy to prevent it!

People commonly store eggs in the fridge. That way, they last longer and can be stored for weeks before expiring. However, the egg temperature has a lot to do with the baking process, so it’s important to know when to get them out of the fridge.

If you just use cold eggs, they won’t mix perfectly with the other ingredients. Your cookies (or other baked goods) will probably be fine, but if you’re going for flawless results, the best thing you can do is to take the eggs out of the fridge the night before. This will allow them to slowly reach room temperature and enhance your recipe.

If you’re doing some last-minute baking and your eggs are still in the fridge, take them out and put them in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes. This is much better than using them straight from the fridge.
