Notes:

  • Adjust your cooking time based on the size of your cookie scoop.
  • A full size ice cream scoop cookie, will take 20 – 22 minutes to cook, depending on your oven.
  • The darker the cookie, the crunchier it will be. If you want soft and chewy, do not over bake!
  • Total cooking time is based on cooking each sheet of cookies individually for 11 minutes.
  • Yes you could substitute shortening for the butter, but you will miss out on the rich, buttery flavor that makes these cookies so special.
