  • When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350°F and line a cookie sheet with foil.
  • Drop cookie dough by teaspoon onto pan. Leave about 3 inches of space between each cookie, as they will spread quite a bit during baking.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes. Keep a close watch and remove from oven when the edges start to turn golden brown, but the center is still light.
  • Allow to cool on the pan for a few minutes, then move to a cooling rack.
