Using a spring release scoop, place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 to 9 minutes. Allow to stand 5 minutes on cookie sheet before carefully removing to a wire rack. The cookies will need to be completely cool before making ice cream sandwiches.
Using a spring release scoop ensures all the cookies will be the same size.
By doing this they will all cook at the same time.
As well, they'll match up better for the ice cream sandwiches.
If you're not making ice cream sandwiches with these cookies, they are fantastic warm with a glass of milk!
