Bake 1 baking sheet at a time at 375 degrees F for 8-10 minutes for chewy cookies (cookies will appear moist - do not over bake) or 11-13 minutes for crisp cookies. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet. Place sheets of foil on countertop. Remove cookies to foil to cool completely. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
