Hey aunty,
I tried these cookies and they taste very chocolately and nice!

However, the cookies are very crumbly to the extent when i wanna lift it up, there will only be a crumble of cookie on my fingers.

Do we need to line the baking sheet with paper? Do we need to cool the whole baking sheet first before removing the cookies?

Thank you very much!!!

Hi anonymous,

Try using a silpat to bake your cookies. I didn't have this problem with my cookies. Perhaps you would like to try again.
