Combine all ingredients, dry then wet, and mix. Shape dough into small 1.5 inch balls with a tablespoon and push off spoon onto greased cookie sheet or parchment paper. Using a spoon and fork prevents the sticky dough from sticking to your hands as your transfer dough to cookie sheet. Then use the fork to press down cookie and flatten it a little bit with a criss-cross design to make it look more like a cookie instead of a ball. Dipping the fork in water between criss-crosses will prevent the fork from sticking to the dough. 

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes at 350 degrees or until edges start to turn darker brown.
