Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix with a wooden spoon. Using the palm of your hands, shape dough into 1cm thick and 5cm round cookies. Place on prepared tray leaving a space of at least 1cm between the cookies. Place the tray on the middle rack in your oven and bake for approximately 18-20 minutes until cookies are golden.
