Then I rolled the cookie dough into balls approximately one inch in diameter.

I placed the cookie dough balls on a parchment lined baking sheet leaving about two inches between them.

Then I used a fork to flatten the balls.

I pressed down on the balls a second time at a 90 degree angle to make a criss-cross pattern.
