Notes

I like to make my cookies extra large.  If you prefer a smaller cookie, adjust cooking time to 8 minutes.
I use a 1/4 cup measuring cup and form the dough into a ball and place on the cookie sheet.  I then press down to form the cookie shape.  I press the middle a little extra so the cookie cooks through evenly.
