cut alluminum foil to fit cookie sheet. have some flour ready to flour hands, and a fork.
Place on foil, continue shapping remaining mounds of dough, placing 3" apart. (NO CLOSER)
dip a fork into the flour & press the back of the tines, forming deep indentations. Since the cookies are so large it will be necessary to press the fork 4 times.once for each quarter of the cookie surface.
the ridges should be parrallel, and go lengthwise with the cookie.
BAKE cookies 12 min. reversing the sheets top to bottom, and turning front to back, once, to insure even browning, now bake til golden brown all over.
(DO NOT UNDERBAKE) if only using a single baking sheet at a tme, use the high rack.
