  2. Always use chilled butter and grate it directly into the bowl. It ensures even distribution.
  3. Don’t over knead the dough, as soon as the dough comes together, keep it in the fridge.
  4. Refrigerate the cookie dough for at least 20 minutes. It will improve the flavour and texture of the cookies. It also prevents the cookies from spreading while baking.
