  • Place heaping 2 tablespoon-size mounds of dough on prepared pans, ( pudgy mounds ) spacing the mounds about 3 inches apart
  • Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 16 to 17 minutes , or until set and a spotty golden color on top
  • The centers should not look wet, but careful do not over bake these or they will be dry………instead of moist
