  • Divide dough into two equal parts. Pat each half into a rectangle measuring about 10 x 9 inches. Chill if necessary to facilitate handling.

  • Cut each rectangle into four strips lengthwise, then cut each strip into ten pieces. Place each piece 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Use a floured fork to gently press ridges into the cookies.

  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden in a preheated 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) oven.

Formed the dough into two 8 inch logs placed them in the freezer until hard. Sliced frozen dough with a deep crinkle cut veggie knife to get nice deep ridges. Cookies looked great but were tough. Never baked a tough cookie before. I love almond but thought this would be better with more vanilla and omit the almond. Read More
