To knead dough, fold it over on itself, then firmly push it away from you with the heel of your palm. Keep repeating these steps.
When dough is smooth, roll it out to about 1/2 inch thick and wrap it in plastic.
Roll dough out and cut into 3-inch squares approximately. As each piece is cut, place it on the parchment-lined cookie sheet.
It helps to work with just 1/3 of the dough at a time.
Constantly turn them over so they color evenly. Remove them when they are light golden brown, and drain on paper towel.
