6. Scoop the cookies. Using a small cookie scoop, or tablespoon scoop the cookies into 1 ½-inch balls (about 2 tablespoons) onto prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart. (For larger cookies I use a large scoop that holds about 1/4-cup of cookie dough and place 6-8 on a baking sheet).
7. Bake and cool the cookies. Bake cookie sheet on the middle rack for 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned on the sides and edges are set. (For larger cookies bake 15-17 minutes). The centers will look soft. Remove from the oven and let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Remove from the cookie sheet and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
