6. Place 1 1⁄2 inch cookie dough balls about two inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.


7. Bake the cookies for 4 minutes then bang the baking sheet on the oven rack twice to deflate the cookies slightly. Bake for an additional 3-4 minutes.

 

8. Allow cookies to cool completely on the baking sheet.
