Here are a few extra tips:
1. If you want to bake easily and not have to wash the entire kitchen from top to bottom afterward, don’t let kids help. Haha.
2. Dissolve the baking soda in 1 tsp of water, or other liquid you are using in the recipe.
3. The recipe calls for chilled dough. In the 10 batches we made today I did not find that it really mattered, but if you do not want to bake all of the cookies right away you can chill rolled dough for a few days or freeze the balls of dough and cook them whenever you want. This is what we did today so the same giant cookies that we gave away today are ready to be baked and given away to everyone who participates on Sunday and sends photo proof.
4. Things tend to go wrong when you are on camera so this recipe will likely be way easier for you than it was for me. haha!!
