Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Or freeze for up to 3 months.
For the perfect, chewy texture use old-fashioned or rolled oats. You can use quick oats, just be aware it will change the texture of the cookies and make them more crumbly.

Is castor sugar and granulated sugar interchangeable? What about pure vanilla/vanilla essence? What size cookie scoop?
You can use either type of sugar. Castor is a finer granule, so won’t take as long to dissolve, but either is fine to use.
Vanilla extract is a more concentrated flavor and contains real vanilla from the pod, whereas vanilla essence is not made from vanilla beans, but a synthetic flavor to replicate the taste of vanilla. Where possible, use extract.
The cookie scoop we used is an ice cream scoop size. you can use a tablespoon or similar.
Hope that answers your questions and happy baking!
