Tips for making these Fudgy Chocolate Cookies
Make sure your oven is accurate, test with an oven thermometer.
Don’t over bake the cookies, you want the cookies to be just a tad underbaked. Over baking will result in dry cookies.
Let the cookies cool down a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack, so they don’t break or lose shape.
For an evenly sized cookie use a small scoop like this small stainless steel scoop.
