Drop batter by rounded tablespoon-fulls 2 " apart onto parchment-lined cookie sheets.  If you have a cookie scoop, all the better.  Slightly flatten tops of cookies.  Bake in center of 350-degree oven for 10-12 minutes.  Check for doneness (beginning to brown around edges, tops lose that wet look).  Remove from oven and allow to cool for five minutes.  Move cookies to wire rack to complete cooling.
