6. Refrigerate dough for at least 45 minutes – dough should be cold and form (if you skip this step the cookies spread and make large, flat, pancake cookies)
7. Form dough into 1 inch balls. Roll each ball in sugar and place on greased baking sheet
8. Bake on 350 F for 8-10 minutes. Cookies should look underbaked. They will become more firm once cooled
