Recipe Notes

*If vegan, substitute 6 tablespoons almost melted coconut oil for the butter and 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flax meal: 2.5 tablespoons water) for the egg.

**Cookies come out very fluffy. If you would like them not quite as thick, simply push down the balls of dough slightly before baking.
