  7. In a tray, add a parchment paper.
  8. Shape into small balls, each weighing 30 grams and next, mold them into whatever shape you want to.
  9. Place the cookies into the tray, roughly 25 can fit and then bake them in a preheated oven, at 180℃, set on fan, for 20 minutes, at the middle rack of the oven.
