  10. Roll dough into balls (the size of 2 tablespoons) and place on greased baking sheet or silicone baking mat.
  11. Bake for 10 minutes.
  12. Remove from oven and allow to cool on cookie sheet for 8-10 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely. (I recommend setting your timer for 8 minutes and checking at that point to see if they need more time)
  13. Cookies stay fresh in covered container for up to one week.
