2. Shape into 6 or 7 lemon-sized balls. Arrange 3 inches apart on
ungreased baking sheet. Using palm of hand flatten each cookie to
1/2- inch thickness.
3. Bake cookies at 300 degrees until faintly browned at edges, about

these cookies. I recommend buying 1 (3-ounce) bar of semisweet
chocolate and breaking it into bite-size pieces.
