Drop by rounded teaspoons, 2 inches apart on to prepared cookie sheet. Dip fork into sugar and press each cookie down by making a crisscross pattern on the cookie (the same way you would do for a peanut butter cookie).

Remove from oven and cool for 1 minute on sheet. Remove cookies to wire cooling rack and cool completely before storing in airtight container. These cookies also freeze very well. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
