  16. Bake on the middle rack for 10 minutes. Do not over brown. They should be browning slightly around the edges. Then let them cool on the sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack or towel.

  17. These cookies are 💯 when fresh and warm, and also keep well.
  18. Makes about three dozen medium sized cookies. You can also make big ones but be careful to get them done in the middle without over-browning them. You might need to drop the oven temp 15 degrees.
