I baked two sizes of cookies. My small cookie scoop slighted mounded with 1-1/2 T of dough makes a 2" cookie and will make around 40 cookies. The medium cookie scoop with 3 T of dough made a 3" cookie and this batch of dough would make about 20 cookies.
Bake small cookie for 7-8 minutes and medium cookie for 8-9 minutes. Cool on sheet for 2 minutes. Remove to cookie rack to finish cooling.
