  • Use a large cookie scoop to drop scoops of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes or until the edges are browned and cookies are set.
  • Cool on a wire rack.



Use a cookie scoop for evenly sized cookies. This recipe calls for a large scoop, which will make large, bakery-style cookies. To use a smaller scoop, reduce the bake time accordingly. 
You may use crunchy peanut butter, if preferred.
