TIPS FOR CINNAMON LEMON COOKIES

1. Place the oven rack in the middle. This allows the hot air to circulate evenly around the cookies, resulting in even cooking.

2. When placing the cookies on the parchment paper, leave some distance between them so they don't stick to each other when they start baking.

3. Never open the oven door while cookies are baking. The kitchen temperature is always lower than the oven temperature, what will happen is that the oven temperature will drop and the risk of the cookies sinks increases.

4. Turn off the oven and leave the cookies in the oven for another 5 minutes.

5. Do not open the oven door all the way, leave the door open about 10 to 15 centimeters (4 inches to 6 inches) and wait another 5 or 10 minutes so that the heat enters the kitchen and there is no temperature shock.
