  • Make sure your ingredients are room temperature
  • Do not over mix the cookie dough
  • The cookie dough does not need to be refrigerated before baking
  • Slightly press the rounded top of the cookie down before baking
  • Make sure to separate the cookie dough on the baking sheet at least 3 inches apart to avoid the cookies from crashing
  • Add Sea Salt right when the cookies come out of the oven to take these to the next level
  • Freeze the Cookie Dough-once the dough is make, scoop the dough into balls, refrigerate to harden and then place the dough balls in a zip loc bag and freeze until ready to serve
  • Thaw Cookie Dough-remove the cookie dough from the freezer and allow it to sit at room temperature until thawed out before baking
