5. Add the vanilla and just mix until incorporated.
6. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until thoroughly incorporated.
7. Allow the cookie dough to rest in the oven for 30 minutes.
8. After resting, pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees.
9. On a tray lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper, scoop out the cookie dough into small balls.
10. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges turn golden-brown.
Take the cookies out of the oven and allow them to cool for 3-4 minutes before serving.
