  3. Add the water-spice mixture to the flour and mix. If the dough is too dry add a little more water.
  4. On a floured work area knead the dough until is smooth. Avoid working the dough too much or it may toughen.
  5. Wrap the dough in plastic and allow it to rest for 1 hour at room temperature.
  6. On a floured work surface roll out the dough until it is 1/4" thick.
  7. With a knife or pizza cutter cut out diamond shapes, 2" wide.
  8. Place the cookies on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  9. Bake at 325F for 30 minutes or until golden.
  10. When cool you may frost the cookies with a simple chocolate icing.

Note:The cookies will feel soft when they come out of the oven but will harden as they cool. Do not over bake! The icing will help lock in moisture.
