The baking time for cookies can vary depending on their size and your oven. As a general guideline, bake them at 350°F (180°C) for standard-sized cookies for 10-12 minutes. However, it’s important to watch them to prevent over-baking. Adjust the baking time accordingly based on the specific recipe and desired level of crispiness.
Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. This will help them firm up and keep their shape.
