  11. Then place the baking tray in a preheated oven at 350°F (180°C) and bake the cookies for 15 to 20 minutes until cooked through. Remove the tray from the hot oven and let the cookies cool down fully. You can decorate the cookies with frosting: combine a tablespoon of icing sugar and half a teaspoon of water. Sprinkle the frosting on top of the cookies and let it set for another 30 minutes.
