  • 2Mix ingredients. Knead with hands. Very sticky and messy. trick make sure dough is cold and put some of powder sugar on your hands ;)
  • 3Refrigerate overnight or a minimum 4 hours. Make into balls, roll in powdered sugar. Bake 10-12 minutes timing is different for ovens so when edges are brown they're ready :)
  • 4TIP: i make up a couple sheets of cookies, then put dough back in fridge to keep cold, dough is much easier to work with when cold.
