Tips & Tricks
- Don't overmix your dough. This could give you tougher cookies. Mix just until ingredients are well blended.
- To keep your cookies from browning too much on the bottom (or even burning), swap the trays halfway through baking. Take the cookie sheet from the top rack and place it on the bottom rack, and vice versa. This will result in more evenly baked cookies.
