Bake at 375F in the oven on the middle rack for 11 minutes or until golden brown. (It is best to check the cookies about every minute or 2 after the timer has gone off until they are done.)

TIP: You can check the doneness of the cookies by using a toothpick. To do this, poke the toothpick into the baking cookie. If it comes out clean, they are done. If it comes out with dough sticking to the sides, they’re going to need to bake longer.
