Here are some tips to help you make the perfect Cheryl cookie:
1. Use room temperature butter: This will ensure that the butter is easy to cream and will create a smooth and fluffy texture.
2. Don’t overmix the dough: Overmixing can result in tough and dry cookies. Mix until just combined.
3. Chill the dough: Chilling the dough for at least 30 minutes will help the cookies keep their shape while baking and prevent spreading.
4. Use parchment paper: This will prevent the cookies from sticking to the baking sheet and make for easy cleanup.
5. Add more add-ins: Feel free to add more chocolate chips, nuts, or any other add-ins to make the cookies even more delicious.
6. Customize the recipe: Use this recipe as a base and customize it to your liking. Change up the add-ins, use different types of chocolate, or even add spices like cinnamon or nutmeg.
