  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350º F.

  4. Using a tablespoon or just your hands, form dough into equal-sized balls and place on baking sheet.

    Note: you can roll cookies in sugar if you prefer they be coated before baking.

  5. Use the tines of a fork to imprint a criss-cross shape on each cookie, then place in oven.
