Once you have the cookie dough mixed up, you roll them into balls the size of golf balls (and trust me, you don’t want them to be any smaller). Then, place them on your cookie sheet and grab a glass. Dip the bottom of it in water and then dip in some sugar mixed with a pinch of salt. You will want to press down on the cookie until it “spills” out from under the glass.

These bake for 8-10 minutes…do not look for them to be golden brown…they won’t be! They will just barely look done. Don’t second guess yourself and put them in longer, that will just dry the cookie out.

Lastly, whip up this simple frosting and frost the cookies once they are cooled.
