  3. Cookie test -( let the cookies sit in the baking tray while its a little warm and soft to touch )

  4. DONT let your cookies turn firm in the microwave/ OTG take them out while they are a little soft in the centre and the crust at the base is light brown - They will firm up as it rests for a while
