  7. Roll heaped tablespoons of the mixture into balls and place on lightly greased baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper+. Bake for 12–14 minutes or until golden brown++.  
  8. Allow to cool on the trays for 5 minutes before transferring onto wire racks to cool. Makes 22

++ Cookies should be golden around the edges with even colouring on the base when they’re ready.  

TIP If you’re baking more than one tray of cookies at a time, swap their shelf positions in the oven halfway through cooking time to ensure even colouring.
