Shape dough into 1-in. balls and place 1 in. apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake until bottoms are lightly browned, which should be between 12-15 minutes. After the cookies are baked, remove them from pans and transfer them to wire racks to cool for 5 minutes. Place the remaining confectioners’ sugar on them. Wait for them to cool completely before serving!
