3Now, beat in the 3 cups of flour. You may have to beat the last cup in my hand. This is a stiff dough. My mixer handled it, but a regular mixer may not.

5Using a rounded tablespoon of dough; carefully roll into balls. Place about 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. ( I made mine a golfball size.) Bake for 12 - 15 minutes. Check sooner, as all ovens cook differently. Mine took exactly 15 minutes.

6Cool for a few minutes on cookie sheet before removing to finish cooking in a wire rack.

Note:
I take my cookies out, while they still look like they have a bit of doughiness to them in the center. They always seem to turn out wonderfully chewy. That's just how we like them.
