Reminder:

1 The heat for different oven is different, the suggested time is only for reference, adjust the baking time based on your oven.

2 Bake the biscuit dough as soon as possible, if it is left unbaked for too long, the baked cookies will be less fluffy.

3 If you need to bake in 2 batches, reduce the baking time for each batch to 12-15 minutes. When the 1st batch is done baking, remove immediately and put in the 2nd batch. When all cookies are baked, return cookies that are slightly soft and not completely dry out to oven and bake for another few minutes.

4 If your oven doesn’t have fan mode or convection function, you may need to turn the baking tray in between baking so that the cookies are evenly baked.
