transfer dough to clean work surface and gently mix dough by hand to ensure even distribution of ingredients.
scoop dough (about a tablespoon each) onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
i used one of those spring release cookie scoopers it makes it so much easier.
also, in between batches i would keep the bowl of dough in the fridge to keep cool.
bake in preheated oven about 10-12 minutes, depending on how gooey and rawish you like the interior, until very lightly browned, taking care not to over bake.
i had my rack in the middle part of my oven and it took about 11 minutes.
only bake 1 pan at a time. let it cool on rack and store what you don't immediately eat in a airtight container.
