  3. Place on non-stick cookie sheet, an inch apart. Bake in preheated oven for 10 -15 minutes, until the bottoms are a nice golden brown. Allow cookies to slightly cool. Place about 2 cups of powerded sugar into a large bowl. While still a little warm, roll cookies into powdered sugar, until fully coated. Makes about 5 dozen cookies, depending on how big your dough balls are.
Notes
Dough can be stored in fridge or freezer. If using all butter and storing in refrigerator, the dough will become very hard. You need to give yourself plenty of time to allow dough to come to room temperature. You can also roll the the cookie dough balls ahead of time and store in refrigerator.
