Then I scooped the cooked dough in balls approximately one and a half inches in diameter and dropped them onto a non stick baking sheet.

I left about two inches between the balls of cookie dough.

I baked the cookies until the edges were starting to darken slightly.

Then I removed the baking sheet from the oven and allowed the cookies to cool on the pan for a few minutes.

After a few minutes I used a spatula to transfer the cookies to some parchment paper on the counter to finish cooling off.
