Roll cookie dough into balls about 3/4 the size of a golf ball and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Use a fork to flatten the cookies until they are about 1/4” thick.
Bake at 325°F for about 10-12 minutes.
Makes about 5-6 dozen.
To make pine powder:
Collect pine needles (still on the branches) and hang them in your home to dry (choose a dry area of your home). After 2-3 weeks (depending on moisture levels in your home) remove the needles from the branches (it is ok if little bits of branches get into the needles).
Place the needles into a good quality coffee grinder or mixer and grind into powder!
