Step 5: Add the bumpy stuff!

Picture of Add the bumpy stuff!
Take those fancy and expensive dragees and push them into the cookies as soon as they come out of the oven.  You want to lightly break the surface of the cookie and make sure that your balls are settled nicely inside.  Then you can let the cookies chill and harden loosely around the dragees.  

Make sure that they are pushed in, more than half way, because they may roll out later.

I recommend putting your timer on the earliest setting for the cookies, taking them out and putting on the dragees, then returning to the oven for a couple more minutes. They bake into the cookies a little better that way. On my first batch, when I waited until the end, putting them in dented the cookies more.
