  2. what happens if i don’t refrigerate the dough for 2 hours?

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Hi Ani.

      It is much easier to work with the dough if you refrigerate it for 2 hours.

  3. Saly Author says:

    Thank you for sharing.I made cookies but they spread much more than yours and you could feel quite greasy. What was wrong? Would you please help me to try again. My measurements was right and my oven is trustable.

  4. Laura Author says:

    How far in advance can you make the dough?

  5. Christina Author says:

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

  6. Christina Author says:

  7. Judith Author says:

    Hola… Esta receta es excelente.. Pero podría hacer las cranberry bliss cookies por favor?!?

  8. Is there a way to double or triple the recipe without compromising the taste or structure of the cookies? I make them every Christmas but with more and more demand I find myself wondering how to multiply the recipe without altering any of the taste, cookie structure, etc.

    1. Ella Marincus-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      You can simply double or triple the recipe using a larger bowl. There shouldn’t be any worries about compromising the cookies’ taste or structure as long as you double/triple all the ingredients. If you are afraid of over-mixing the dough, you can also consider preparing the dough one batch at a time.
