While the dough chills, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray your pan with non stick spray.
With a medium cookie scoop, roll cookies into 1 inch cookie balls then roll them in sugar till fully covered and place them on the baking sheet with parchment paper spacing them 2 inches apart, then flatten with your fingers to even them out a little, but don’t flatten them too much!
