* My cookies were the size of two small ice cream scoops , then I shaped them into tall cylinder cookies.
** Please be aware that baking time vary according to your oven, and every oven is different. I’ve experienced with many temperatures and cooking times and found that at 350F for exactly 12 minutes resulted in perfect chewy in the middle with a little crunch on the edges kind of cookies.
