WHAT DOES SPOONED AND LEVELLED FLOUR MEAN?

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then scrape with a knife to level off the access. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour cause the flour to compress and getting more than the recipe calls for.

STORING THE COOKIES

Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. The cookies stay good for up to four days if stored properly.

HOW TO GET PERFECTLY ROUND COOKIES

As soon as the baked cookies are pulled from the oven place a round cookie cutter (a little bit large than the cookies) around the cookies and gently swirl it around. This will give your cookie a round shape. If you don’t have a cookie cutter you can use a glass or a jar lid.

CAN I MAKE THE COOKIES SMALLER?

Yes, you can! Scoop 1.5 tbsp sized balls and bake for 9 minutes until the bottoms are golden brown.
