Line tray with parchment paper. Place granulated sugar on a plate. Roll cookie dough into balls & roll balls in sugar to coat them completely.

Place cookies 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet. Bake until cookies begin to puff up slightly, about 12 minutes, until they are just brown around the edges.
