These cookies are about as basic as it gets, and contain only five ingredients. They take hardly any time to prep, and each set can be done in about 10 minutes, or 20 if using a countertop oven. They are that easy! So if you are having a sweet craving, and don’t want to slip down to the grocers to buy ready-made cookies, these are perfect. You most likely keep these ingredients on hand if you bake often, or even if you don’t, so don’t hesitate to try them.
