Mix liquid into dry ingredients, and smile.

Drop Tablespoons of batter onto greased cookie sheet (could use parchment paper too) Space them well, as they expand quite a bit.

Bake for 7-12 minutes at 350 F, until edges are browned lightly.

*note* the second and third batches turned out thicker. I think it’s because the batter sat for longer.
