  • Use about a tablespoon sized ice cream scoop of batter for each cookie.
  • Place the cookies on baking sheet (don’t over crowded). Gently flatten each ball of dough, with lightly moistened fingers.
  • Bake the cookies for about 14 -16 minutes, rotating the baking sheet front to back about half way through the baking time.
  • When cookies are done, they are just set around the edges but still quite soft in the center.
  • Remove from oven and let the cookies cool for 15 minutes.
  • Serve it with hot milk & enjoy the day !!!

Hints:

If you like to have a crunchy cookies, bake the cookies for 2 minutes longer time.

For perfect shape cookies, as shown in the below picture, wrap the dough in parchment paper like sausage, refrigerate it until it fully set, slice it an equal shape with sharp knife & bake it.
