  2. 2Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl with your hands for 5 minutes
  3. 3Place the dough over a sheet of wax paper, and use the paper to roll the dough into a log
  4. 4Unroll the wax paper, and cut off 1/4" pieces of dough with a knife
  5. 5Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then turn them over and cook for another 5 minutes
