  • Step 7: After 30 minutes are done… Line the baking tray with baking paper or aluminum foil paper. Rub some oil lightly on the foil to avoid sticking. 
  • Step 8: With an ice-cream scoop or regular tablespoon, scoop some cookie dough and roll them into balls.Arrange them well while spacing them appropriately.
