Cover bowl and refrigerate at least 3 hours. Shape dough into 1 inch balls.


Place balls, about 2 inches apart, on ungreased baking sheets.


Dip tines of fork into flour and press tines across tops of cookies to flatten; press again to opposite direction.


Sprinkle cookies with granulated sugar.


Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes, or just until cookies are golden. Remove from baking sheets and let cool completely on wire racks.
