  • Use an ice cream scoop to scoop dough onto a cookie sheet.  Fill the ice cream scoop with water and measure it in a liquid measuring cup to know how big your cookies will be.  This is important to know how long to bake your cookies.
  • BAKE TIME IS EVERYTHING!Watch your cookies closely in the oven.  If you like your cookies gooey, DO NOT bake them until they are golden around the edges and on top.
