When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Create a ball out of the dough and place on cookie sheets and once it’s full, place the sheet in the oven. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove the cookies from the oven and place them on a cooling rack for about 5 minutes.
