6. Bake 5-7 minutes. (I recommend 5 minutes for a single cookie sheet. I recommend 7 minutes for double stacked cookie sheets. See note below.)

13. Spoon frosting into a ziplock bag. Cut a small hole in the corner of the bag. Drizzle frosting over cooled cookies.

Notes

I like to double stack my cookie sheets when I bake cookies to insulate the bottoms of the cookies so they don't bake too fast. This helps make cookies stay super soft.
