  • Use ingredients at room temperature.
  • Make sure you measure the flour correctly. Use a kitchen scale or measuring cup.
  • Use refined coconut oil.
  • Instead of eggs, you can use flaxseed eggs or unsweetened applesauce.
  • Arrange the dough on the tray in small balls with a cookie scoop or ice cream scoop. Do not flatten the dough balls as they will spread.
  • Do not overcook the cookies. Bake until the edges are golden.
  • After removing the cookies from the oven, let them cool for 5 minutes. Otherwise, the cookies may crumble.
  • It is essential to use butter to make the cookies melt in your mouth. Of course, cookie dough can be made with margarine, but considering the water content of butter, the best thing to make cookie dough with is the marvelous butter.
  • You can use egg yolks as binders in omelets, meals and while making shortbread pies.
  • If you want, you can prefer nuts instead of walnuts or a different nut you want according to your taste.
  • Vinegar is the secret hero of pastries, cookies, donuts. By adding a few drops of vinegar to the dough, your cookies will be remarkable.
  • If you want your cookies to be light and fluffy, you need to put baking powder. However, if you say that there is no need for extra baking, you can prepare delicious cookies without baking powder as well.
  • You can sweeten your cookies with the smooth texture of powdered sugar, even if you always come across powder or sugar cubes. The point to pay attention to is to add powdered sugar to only half of the powdered sugar.
  • After kneading the dough, keep it in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. This makes the dough firm and prevents it from spreading too much during baking.
