*If for some reason your dough is too soft to form balls at this point, don’t add more flour. Just cover and place bowl in the fridge until dough firms.
Take about 1/4 C dough and form into a ball. Break ball in half and place dough on cookie sheet with broken edge facing up. (Or just use a standard sized cookie scoop). Bake until cookies are set around outer edges start to hardenyet centers are still soft and puffy, 10-13 minutes. Cool cookies on cookie sheets. Serve or store in airtight container.
*If you are freezing or giving to someone, let dough set in fridge until it firms up. Then put in saran wrap and roll into logs. Then wrap with foil. Freeze or give to someone. Let thaw out and then break apart like mentioned above and cook as directed.
