Bake cookies, rotating sheets halfway through, until golden brown, about 9 -11 minutes.
For softer cookies, make sure they are slightly underbaked and then cool them on the sheets completely. If you don't cool them on the sheets they WILL fall apart!
For crispier cookies, bake them another 2-3 minutes until golden brown and crispy. Remove and cool on the sheets, then remove to a cooling rack.
