Drop dough by heaping teaspoons onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 325 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool slightly on cookie sheets, remove to wire rack to cool completely.
made this cookie and it is a great tasting cookie,,however if you want six dozen of cookies..you really have to make them small..and i like a big cookie..so i ended up getting around 3 1/2 dozen with a big cookie scoop..notice there is no baking or soda powder in this recipe..but it is very good and easy to put together!
