Recipe Tips:

  • For a softer texture, slightly underbake the cookies and allow them to cool completely on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack.
  • You can customize these cookies by adding nuts, dried fruits, or different types of chocolate chips to the dough according to your preferences.
  • If you prefer thicker cookies, chill the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before baking to prevent excessive spreading in the oven.
  • To keep your cookies fresh for longer, place a slice of bread in the container with them to help retain moisture.
