Place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Flatten each with a smooth bottom of a drinking glass greased once and dipped into Nestles' Quick Powder. Bake at 400 for 8 minutes. Remove at once from baking sheet, to paper toweling, and immediately flatten each cookie with a smooth spatula. Let cool 20 minutes.
