Recipe Tips

  • Cookie Scoop – The cookie scoop I used is approximately 1 tablespoon of dough size.  If you use a large cookie scoop make sure to adjust the cooking time accordingly. 
  • Room Temperature Ingredients – When combining the ingredients make sure the ingredients are at room temperature. This helps to blend the ingredients easily and prevents lumps in your batter.
  • Prepare Baking Sheets –  Parchment paper makes clean up easy and helps the cookies to bake evenly without spreading a bunch.
  • Allow the cookies to set. –  Allow the cookies to rest on the baking sheet for 5 minutes prior to moving to the cooling rack. This will help them to set and not crumble when moved.
