Time to sit back & enjoy

The best thing about this throw-it-all-in-the-bowl-and-mix recipe is how adaptable and forgiving it is. I've used all kinds of flour substitutions, various ground up nuts, added raw cacao instead of half the flour and oops! spilled too much coconut in the bowl... they always came out delicious with just a little variation in texture.

If you like a crispier biscuit, squish them flatter before baking (reduce cooking time by a minute or two and keep an eye on them) or add a tiny bit more butter and use smaller eggs. Using all raw sugar instead of brown will make them crispier. Using all brown sugar, adding an extra egg white and taking away one egg yolk will result in a chewier texture.

I confess, I only weighed the ingredients the first time I made these cookies... now I just wing it and play a kind of cookie baking roulette.
