When eady to bake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet with shortening or nonstick cooking spray.

Bake in the center of the oven until set and lightly golden, 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven, allow to cool about 2 minutes then carefully transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool. Cookies will be very soft when warm.

Store any leftovers in refrigerator due to the meat in the cookie.
