  5. Using a small scoop, place dough onto parchment lined baking sheets. I used a fork to press down on them to make them flat. You can keep them round or flatten them.

  6. Bake for 13-18 minutes. Start keeping an eye at 13 minutes as you just want the tops to lightly brown, not burn.

  7. Let the cookies cool completely (about 20 minutes) before frosting them.
