  1. By leaving the butter soften in room temperature it makes it so much easier to mix. In the past trying to mix cold butter was very difficult causing issues with the baking process.

2. Covering the cookie mixture and letting it chill in the refrigerator will make it easier to form balls that will stay put on the cookie sheet.

3. When the dough is chilled it makes forming the cookies so much easier. Make sure you pile it higher than a normal cookie recipe.

4. Create a tall mound. Put them at least 2 inches apart from each which will give them the chance to bake into a nice shape.

5. My daughter added M& M’s for extra flavor to some of the cookie dough. I am partial to the Chocolate chips.
