5. Bake for 10-20 minutes (really depends on your oven), until barely golden brown around the edges.  The cookies will be easy to spatula off the baking tray but still soft inside.
Pls excuse the dirty-looking oven door...

Oh my… I can’t wait!

5.  Let cool, on the sheet, on a wire rack for five minutes.  Remove from baking sheet and serve warm or set aside to cool completely.
Ok... so they aren't *totally* golden brown... but I promise you... one bite and you'll never ask more!
