RECIPE NOTES AND TIPS
Line the baking sheet with parchment paper to prevent sticking and for easier clean-up
Make sure you've chilled the dough at least 30 minutes prior to heating the oven.
The cookies bake rather quickly so you'll want to watch them the last few minutes of baking... especially since oven temperatures can vary somewhat.
Allow cookies to cool thoroughly before storing in airtight containers.
