Hi florz,

Try to used chilled butter for your cookies and if you find your dough a bit too soft, add in a little more flour and chill in the frige for easier handling.

Bake cookies at 160C.

Hi florz,

I used a mixer to cream my butter and sugar first then add in eggs, then the flour and mix into a soft dough. Do not overmix.

Hi,

Just add up the granola ingredients and that should be the amount to be used.
