  • Alternative Sweeteners: Swap granulated sugar with coconut sugar for a caramel-like flavor.
  • Nutty Goodness: Throw in a cup of chopped walnuts or pecans. You wild thing, you.
  • Garnish Ideas: Sprinkles, sea salt flakes, or a drizzle of melted chocolate. Let your inner artist shine.
  • Cooking Tip: For chewy cookies, underbake slightly; if you prefer crispy, extend the baking time by 2 minutes.
