  3. 3. Preheat oven to 375°F Line baking sheet with parchment (I use baking stone). Use hands to form dough into 1 1/2 inch balls. Place balls about 2-inches apart on cookie sheet. Using a fork, press balls slightly flat both ways, forming a crisscross pattern. Bake cookies until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Cool on sheet for 10 minutes, then transfer to racks to cook completely. Repeat.
