  • bake the cookies one sheet at a time until the bottoms are browned and the tops are pale but firm, and a toothpick inserted near the center of a cookie comes out dry, about 20 minutes.
  • cool the cookies on the baking sheet for 5 minutes., then using a wide metal spatula, transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
  • dust the cooled cookies with powdered sugar -- if desired.The cookies can be stored in a tightly covered container at room temperature for up to 4 days.
