     Bake 2 apart on paper lined (baking paper) sheet tray or lightly
     greased cookie sheet.  Use well rounded table spoon and then flatten
     each cookie a little with the bottom of a glass that was dipped in
     sugar to keep from sticking.
     Conventional Oven: 350 degrees until lightly browned.
     Convection Oven:  325 degrees until lightly browned.
     These baking times are just a guide line.  You should do what works
     best for your oven.  Enjoy!
     These cookies should be soft and chewy.
