    What does the corn syrup do? Can you leave it out?

    • Swans Down says:

      Hi Elsa, Corn syrup is used to make the cookies softer and chewier. If you don’t have corn syrup on hand you can use honey or molasses, but it will slightly alter the flavor. Happy baking!

    I made these today, is it true there’s no baking soda? Wondering if using an electric mixer to blend butter/sugar/egg would have made a higher cookie. These came out quite flat.

    • Swans Down says:

      Hi Laura, Yes this recipe does not call for baking soda. It’s the melted butter that results in a lower profile, more chewy cookie. If you prefer you can put the cookie in the fridge for about 30 minutes to firm up before baking. Happy baking!
