    Preheat oven to 325°. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

    Using a 2-inch ice cream scoop, scoop dough onto baking sheet, 2½ inches apart. If you have a smaller scoop, reduce the baking time by a couple minutes; if you have a larger scoop, the baking time remains the same. Refrigerate 20 minutes.

    Roll dough balls in granulated sugar and return to baking sheets. Transfer to oven and bake until surfaces crack slightly, about 18 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
