  4. Measure out heaping teaspoonsful of the dough, roll into balls (about 1 - 1 1/2" in diameter). Place on baking sheet about 1 inch apart.
  5. With the tines of a fork, flatten balls, making a crisscross pattern.
  6. Bake in the middle of the oven until pale golden, about 10 minutes. (for crisper cookies, bake 1 minute longer)
