3. using wet hands, roll teaspoon size balls onto a parchment (or silpat) lined baking sheet. you’ll have to rinse and re-wet your hands as the batter will begin to stick to your hands. bake on the top rack for 20 minutes or until golden brown. allow to cool completely before removing from the cookie sheet.

This recipe was developed by a pre-school teacher my mother works with. The idea was to make a recipe that a four-year old could handle- hence the number of ingredients and a consistency comparable to Elmer’s glue. This tastes better, though.

This recipe is inexpensive and a cinch to throw together. I think I could bake these blindfolded.
