These cookies will go great with a cup of tea!  They are easy to make with simple ingredients.

Lots of recipes add vanilla extract into the dough but it takes away from the original taste.  Enjoy the smell of these cookies while you bake!

  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Unwrap dough from saran wrap. Cut into 1/3-1/4 inch slices. The thicker the cookie, the longer it takes to bake. Lay them on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.

    Bake 12-15 minutes. Cookies are done once the edges start to brown and bottom of cookie is a nice golden brown color.
