Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Use a large cookie scoop or hands to form 2in dough balls. Place on cookie sheet 2in apart from one another.
Bake for 10 minutes, remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack. Allow to cool before frosting to prevent it from melting off.
