STORING THE COOKIES

These cookies should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature. The cookies keep well up to four days.

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 the cookies smaller. Instead scoop 1.5 tbsp worth of dough and bake for 8-9 minutes.
