1 Tablespoon vanilla

Directions:
Mix all ingredients, roll out to 1/2" thickness and cut into 2-3" circles. I sometimes use heart shapes or other shapes. Bake in a 350 F oven for about 10 minutes, but try not to let them get brown. They are done when they are no longer shiny and when they are firm all the way through. You may have to test a few before baking the whole batch, because oven temperatures differ so widely. Bake two or three and test for doneness by tasting. If they taste dough-y bake longer. Mine usually take 10-12 minutes.
