  8. Take one scoop of cookie dough and place it on the baking sheet. Place the cookie dough scoops 5cm (2 inches) apart.
  9. Bake for 8-10 minutes if you like the middle soft and chewy ( the ends should be golden brown and the middle slightly underdone. If you want a well-done cookie, bake for 10-12 minutes (the whole cookie should look done).

4 tips on how to make the cookies perfect

  1. If you have the time, let the cookie dough rest for at least 30 minutes in the fridge.
  2. Use high-quality organic brown sugar. The sugar should be moist. The cookies will get a slight caramel note, which is simply perfect.
  3. Use fresh lemon zest from an organic lemon.
  4. Melt the butter.
