Hi! I tried making the cookies ytd! They tasted great at the start. But become lao hong after 2 hours. Is there anyway i can avoid that,
Just keep in air tight container.
Do we need to preheat the oven?
Hello! Can the dough be made ahead of time and store in the fridge, then take them out to bake the next time? Will doing this affect the taste or texture of the cookies?
I don’t recommend.
Did you use white or brown sugar? Is the oven temperature with or without fan please? Thanks
White sugar. I am not sure about the fan. My US oven doesn’t have the fan function.
Fabulous thanks. My oven has both, so I’ll just use it no fan with the white sugar. Can’t wait.
Hi there! This recipe can yield approximately 36 pieces of cookies?
Can I use ghee instead of butter? Will it change the texture of the cookies?
Please follow the recipe.
Hi, do you you large eggs for the recipe? And, is there any specific brand of butter that you recommend for making the cookies?
Any butter is fine. Large eggs are fine.
What kind or brand of butter best for cookies?
