6I form the balls with a slightly rounded measuring teaspoon because I prefer nibbble size cookies. 1/2 tablespoon makes medium size cookies...your choice
7Roll each ball in a mixture of 2 Tablespoons of sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Again I do this to my own preference cuz I love cinnamon. I also place this is a plastic bag and roll 8-10 at a time.
8I bake my cookies on parchment paper - saves clean up. I cool the cookies on the cookie sheet on a rack.
9Bake at 375 for about 10 minutes. They will be soft when you remove them but will crisp up quickly.
10My result with the bite size is I end up with 9 dozen cookies....the more to share!
