Valentina has kindly shared some of her invaluable cookie wisdom, and we couldn't resist passing them along to you:
- Achieve Cookie Perfection with a Cookie Scoop: For consistently beautiful and evenly sized cookies, employ the use of a cookie scoop whenever possible. This handy tool ensures uniformity and results in visually pleasing treats.
- The Secret to Soft Texture: Valentina's secret for achieving a perfect soft texture is both simple and magical. When removing the cookies from the oven, they should appear slightly underdone. Trust the process! As they cool on the hot baking sheet, they will continue to bake, resulting in a delightful soft and chewy center.
