Quick Notes

Tip 1: Put the egg in a cup of warm water for 5-10 minutes while you get the rest of your ingredients ready. This way it will be closer to the same temperature as the butter making it easier to incorporate.

Tip 2: For chewy cookies: The trick is to remove them from the oven just before they “look” done. They finish cooking while they cool on the pan so this is key to avoiding a crunchy cookie.
