Tips and Tricks
  • * The batter is super sticky and makes it hard to roll into nice even balls. To get perfect round cookies scoop the dough out onto the cookie sheet and allow it to sit for a few minutes.
  • This will make the dough less sticky and you will be able to re-roll the scoops to form a nice ball. But this step isn't necessary unless you want perfection- otherwise they will still be 90% round and still delicious!
