How Do You Keep The Cookies From Sticking To the Pan?

The muffin tin needs to be sprayed with non-stick spray or coated with butter. This keeps the little muffin tin cookies from sticking.

Do You Flatten The Cookies Before Baking?

We do not. We make sure they are in the muffin area and not going to melt outside of it.

What Chocolate Chips Are Used?

We prefer to make these with mini chocolate chips as they are small and don’t leave one area with a big area of chocolate.

How Many Cookies Does This Make?

It depends on how much cookie dough you use. you are putting about a teaspoon of cookie dough into the pan, so it makes a lot of cookies.

You can definitely use a cookie scoop. Make sure you use a teaspoon sized cookie scoop so the muffin tin is not overfilled.
