Magic: She turned a cup upside down and placed the brim over a hot cookie before swirling it around to reshape it
Incredible: When she removed the cup, she cookie was in the shape of a circle
The cookies have to be hot in order for her trick to work, so she recommended reshaping them as soon as they are pulled out of the oven.
All she did was turn the cup upside down, place the brim over a cookie, and swirl it around. When she removed it, the cookie was in the shape of a circle.
A number of comments shared that they just eat their misshapen cookies and don’t care either way, but others were thrilled to learn the ‘genius’ trick.
‘Those look absolutely perfect,’ one person wrote, while another added: ‘The perfectionist in [me] THANKS YOU.’

Someone else was also skeptical of the hack and asked her to ‘use a clear glass so we can see it’s true.’
The mom responded to the request with a follow-up clip that shows her reshaping a hot chocolate chip cookie using a clear mug.
