Frequently Asked Questions

STORING THE COOKIES

Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature up to four days.

CAN I MAKE THE COOKIES SMALLER?

Yes, you can! Scoop 1.5 tbsp sized balls and bake for 8 minutes until edges are golden brown.

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 level off the access by scraping with a knife. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour causes the flour to compress and you will get more flour than the recipe calls for.

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.
