Almond Cookie FAQs | Answers to Common Questions

Why are my cookies spreading

When first putting together the cookie dough, it may be tempting to think that it is too thick. It should be thick so that it sticks together during the baking process.

Please don’t add extra liquid because it will make your mixture too runny. If that happens the cookies mixture will start spreading onto the baking tray. 

Why does this even happen? 

It may occur if butter from the condensed milk starts separating and make the mixture runny. 

If this happens?

How to handle flowy batter? It is recommended to bake almond cookies in a cupcake tray.

Why are my cookies falling apart?

It’s important to know that when you take out cookies from the oven, they first seem soft. However, if you let cookies sit for a few minutes at room temperature and then keep cookies in the freezer for a half-hour, they will solidify. 

Also, they easily pop out of the cupcake tray.

How to store almond cookies?

We recommend storing the cookies in a glass jar or container with a lid. The key factor is to keep them covered and in a cool and dry place. 

I also recommend considering storing them in the fridge. I like the cookies to be a bit stiffer and the fridge is the perfect place for helping with that.

How to freeze cookies?

The best part about almond joy cookies is that you can bake and freeze them before the party or event day.  

Store them by putting them in a zip-lock bag and place them in a container with a lid.

How to defrost cookies?

Make sure to take cookies out of the container and zip bag and spread them on the serving plate. Don’t cover the cookies, and also don’t defrost them in zip bags as it will ruin the texture of the cookies.
