Step 5 seems incomplete. Bake at 350 degrees F - FOR HOW LONG?

Depending on the size of the cookie, I would cook only 10 min. or less if you like them gooey. However I also do cookies on 375; with that much butter/shortening I wouldn't spray the sheet either. Try them first one way then the next sheet another way.

Hello jmissj3, Sorry for the confusion, we've updated the recipe to reflect the baking time. Thanks for your feedback.
