Tools:

For cookies with a chewier texture, use a wooden spoon to mix the dough.
For cookies with cake-like texture, use a mixer that will incorporate more air into the dough.

Process:

  • preheat the oven to 160° С (325° F),
  • if you prefer cookies with a chewier texture, melt the butter, and then cool to room temperature, otherwise, bring the butter to room temperature.

Baking and serving:
  • line a baking tray with parchment paper or spray with non-stick spray,
  • using a large spoon, form equal size rounds of dough (leave enough space between each cookie as they will spread out a bit as they bake),
  • (optional) refrigerate for 15 minutes before baking,
  • bake the cookies until the edges turn a light golden color (about 15 minutes),
  • once done, cool for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack,
  • allow to cool completely before serving.
