  4. 4. Drop cookie dough by heaping tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto parchment paper-lined or lightly greased baking sheets.
  5. 5. Bake at 375º for 9 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. (Bake chilled dough 10 to 11 minutes.) Cool on baking sheets on a wire rack 5 minutes; transfer to wire racks, and cool completely (about 30 minutes).
