I've played around with the size of these cookies over the years and have settled on slightly rounded tablespoons or cookies that are a little over an 1 oz each. I always get at least 24 cookies. Using European style butter results in a slightly thicker cookie, and not greasing the pan also inhibits spreading. I use parchment or foil -- never spray or grease.
