Recipe Tips

  • Use room temperature eggs- Ensure the eggs are at room temperature to froth enough and add air to the cookies for a fluffy texture.

    ### FAQ’S

    Why are the cookies flat? Your cookies might flatten if the dough wasn’t chilled. Cooling the dough helps it keep its shape while baking, preventing it from spreading too much and turning flat and crispy, so remember this step.

    Can you make the dough ahead of time? Yes, you can prepare the cookie dough in advance by forming it into balls and flash freezing them on a baking sheet. You can store them in the freezer for up to 3 months in a ziplock bag.
