    Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for about 10 minutes....take out before fully baked.

    Using a cookie cutter (any shape) make an impression in the center of the cookie and WIGGLE it a bit to make some room around the shape. Do not remove this shape, keep it inside the cookie.

    Continue baking till done about another 5-7 minutes.
