  • If you want your cookies to brow evenly than turn the tray half way through cooking.
  • Cooking times will vary on how much you flatten the dough. Start with the lowest cooking time and then add a few minutes more according to your taste.
  • Use other flavourings to your taste, example cinnamon extract or other spices.
  • You can swap almond butter or cashew butter instead of peanut butter.
  • Please do let cookies cool on the sheet (transferred to a cooling rack), otherwise they will break if you try and remove them before then.

  1. Escorts can be categorized into many segments; however two broad classifications are agency escort and Independent escort. They do exactly the same work, but the style is completely different. An agency escort is employed by the company and she is supposed to serve its client following the guidelines. On the other hand, Independent Rajkot escorts operate independently and have no obligations. They have their own terms and conditions and you need to follow them. Despite their flexible working style, these girls are expensive. At times they charge more than agency escorts. They are veteran and have worked for several agencies in the past. That’ show; they have got a good reputation and big number of customers in the market.https://rajkot.sinyep.com/
