Tips for making the best cookies
Use a large cookie scoop. The baking time for this cookie recipe is for using a large cookie scoop. If you use a smaller one, you may need to adjust the baking time a bit.
Use dark brown sugar. Dark brown sugar definitely helps make these cookies that much more delicious. If you only have light brown sugar, that will still work. Dark brown sugar has such a rich, dark flavor, so you'll just lose a little bit of that with light brown sugar. But overall, it will work!
Use a silicone baking mat. I know it's not necessary to use a baking mat to get delicious cookies, but it's something that I highly recommend investing in. It helps create a more even baking surface for the cookies while they bake, and helps prevent them from burning as easily. It's probably one of the top 3 baking tools I use most often and I love it!
