*Using a silpat assures a perfect cookie. They don’t spread, and are very simple to remove to wax paper.
If using parchment paper, don’t worry if the cookies spread slightly. It’s ok! After you remove them from the oven, you can quickly push the edges in slightly with a knife then remove to wax paper.
When removing the cookies, place them on their tops until cool. This way, they don’t stick at all. Once the cookies are cool, you can turn them over.
