    thank u soo much :)

    You will easily get 2 dozen cookies (or more) from the cookie dough. The icing will ice 2 dozen cookies, if you do not spread it thickly. You may store the icing for about 3 days in your refrigerator.

  25. TaylorSelenaROX says:

    can you please tell approximately how many medium sized cookies would the chocolate dough make…and if i m using the buttercream icing recipe u published in another video than approximately how many biscuits would the icing be enough for if i do not spread it on too thin or too thick ?
    and can the icing be stored? if so how and till when?
    Please please reply before the 8th of march …thank u :)

    These cookies need to be baked at 350 degrees (F) for about 10 minutes. Check them occasionally to make sure they don’t get over-done.

    It is really 2 tablespoons. That measure I used has the shape of a measuring cup, so it does look like more, but it is 2 tablespoons.
