Divide the dough inward one-half as well as press into the cookie mold.  Holding the mold upright, tap on a rigid border protected alongside a folded kitchen towel.  As the dough starts to line away from the mold, invert over a baking canvass as well as carefully house the dough on the parchment lined cookie sheet.  Repeat alongside the remaining dough.



Bake inward a preheated 325 marking oven for 35 to twoscore minutes or until pale inward color.



Immediately sprinkle alongside additional carbohydrate as well as allow the cookies to cool completely on a wire rack.



Buttery as well as lite as well as crunchy.  Everything a cookie should be.

May the air current move e'er at your back,
The Sun smoothen warm upon your face,
The pelting autumn soft upon your fields,
And until nosotros encounter over again
May God concord you lot inward the hollow of his hand.
