Recipe Notes

* If the cookies are starting to brown too much, turn the oven temperature off and leave the cookies in the oven to continue cooking at a lower temperature and check on them frequently. If they are on their way to burning, take them out of the oven, but leave on the cookie sheet to continue cooking a bit longer.
