Using a small cookie scoop, drop heaping tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheet spaced 2” apart (12 cookies to a sheet). Lightly dust the tops with icing sugar, then, using a fork, flattened out the cookies creating a criss-cross pattern. *TIP* if your fork is sticking to the dough, dip it in a little icing sugar to prevent sticking.

Bake for 9-11 minutes, until edges are golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool on baking sheet 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

*TIP* This dough can be a little sticky, sprinkling the cookie dough with a little icing sugar and dipping your fork in it, before flattening the cookies down helps to prevent sticking to the fork.
