Vegan Cookie Recipes
Written by Mattie    
Hi, I see in the pictures that the cookie dough is in clumps on the cookie sheet, but after baking, they are flattened like regular cookies.
Do they become like that while baking or do you flatten the little balls before baking them?
Also, somebody mentioned tearing the dough and reshaping.... I didn't find the description that was referring to. What was that about?
Thanks for sharing this recipe. I'll have to try it!

Hi Daniela! Great questions. The cookies don't call to be flattened because they'll melt in place during baking. They're intended to be placed on the sheet in ball form.

An earlier version of this recipe called for tearing the balls in half and rejoining for a desirable uneven top. After experimenting with this method I determined it to be completely unnecessary- the cookies flatten into perfectly acceptable rounds regardless so I updated the recipe accordingly. Good luck!
