Addition of cornstarch will make the lighter cookies.

The first time I posted the recipe, I baked them on low temperature for longer period of time. Just to keep the dome shape of cookie intact and also they will not spread if baked on low temp.

But with that method many readers have tried and they end up with hard cookies.

So I have modified the recipe and baking temp, time. Now you will not face this issue anymore.
