  • The oven has a temperature difference; please refer to your oven temperature when baking.
  • It takes a bit of skill to squeeze cookies. But, if you do more, you will squeeze very beautifully. In the beginning, pay attention to the same size when squeezing, and keep the spacing.
  • Observe more in the last few minutes of baking, and the color should be golden, so don’t bake it.

If you wanted to add something, what is safe to add to the recipe?

Cookies are great as they allow you to flavor them as you would like. One of the most common options you can add is chocolate cookies. So, as you can see, they make the best essential cookie, but you can also use the following alternatives.

Crushed cookies: you can use crushed options like Oreos to make the best tasting cookies too. You can also have the nuttier butter and the circus cookies.

Sprinkles: consider adding the different sprinkles for even better tastes and the richness of the flavors.

I like to add some different nuts to enhance the flavors, and you, too, can do the same.

Is it okay for me to freeze the cookie base for future use?

Yes, you can also make the cookie dough in advance and then store it in the freezer or fridge if you need to. In this case, though, it’s better to portion it first. Then, once you have the dough set, you can set them in a baking tray and store them for future use.

How can you make the cookie crispy?

The one thing that will make your cookies stand out is the texture. So, the first thing you’re going to do then is to make sure you know the ingredients that will typically add moisture to the cookie. So, you should reduce the brown sugar in the flour and the eggs. So, this will give it just the standard and fun texture. If you like it even crispier, then you should let the items bake for longer.

What to do when you want the chewy cookie?

Sometimes you need the chewy cookie. So, you should then make the cookie thicker if you like for it to be chewy.

However, if you use tiny pieces of the dough, you will have it being dryer. Also, consider baking the thick cookies for a shorter time over high temperature to make sure it’s nicely cooked.
