*RECIPE NOTES*

Yes, this recipe is written to make 9 cookies. They’ll be large bakery style cookies and they’re amazing! If you want smaller cookies, adjust the baking time accordingly.

This dough doesn’t tend to double well. If you need more than 9 cookies, I recommend making separate batches.

This recipe requires real butter – do not use margarine.
