I sometimes make giant cookies using an ice cream scoop, spray the inside. If not I use a heaped table spoon. Place remaining sugar in a shallow plate. Drop dough by scoopfuls or spoonfuls onto sugar, Roll, coat well. then place on cookie sheet.

If I am making with ice cream scoop, I do six per pan, otherwise I do twelve.

Bake 11-13 min, do not over bake. You want these chewy and soft!

I use my KitchenAid mixer to make these with little mess and a lot of saved time!
