  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a baking sheet and keep aside. Scoop about 2 Tbsp of the dough, form into a loose ball. Split it into 2 halves. Place once half on the baking sheet with the flat surface down. Place the other half on the first half such that the flat surface is upwards. Alternatively, you can just scoop up 1.5 Tbsp of the dough, form into a loose ball and place it on the baking sheet.

Notes | FAQ

- Flax seed meal is a substitute for egg. If not a vegetarian / vegan, you can replace flaxseed + water with 1 large egg.
- Adjust the size of the dough balls based on the size of cookie you desire.
- Baking time would depend on your oven settings and the size of cookie.
- Do not roll the dough balls tight.
- Leave atleast 2 inches space between the cookies while baking to make sure that they do not stick to each other after baking.
- Immediately after pulling the cookies from the oven, they will be very soft and feel like they are under cooked. It is mandatory to let them rest outside for atleast 10 mins.
