Question slow letdown

I think I have a slow letdown. Or at least too slow for my hungry little piggy. DD is and has always been exclusively fed from the breast but lately it seems that she's frustrated with my letdown. Once it gets going she's perfectly happy but it takes about 15-20 seconds until she settles on the breast these days, when before it was always immediate. Is there anything I can do to speed up my letdown? Massaging my breast seems to help a bit... would upping my supply a bit (nothing drastic... making a batch or two of the lactation cookies, for example) help the flow come quicker?
