  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix flour and baking powder together and set aside.

  • Transfer to a cutting board and cut diagonally into ¾-inch slices.
  • Lay cookies on their side and return to a 300°F oven for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and flip each cookie onto the other side. Bake another 10 minutes. Let cool on a rack.
