When the dough is ready wash your hands and get rolling.   Make up some balls of dough and throw them in the coating and mix it up.  Preheat your oven to 350 at this time too.

Throw them on the baking sheet and smush them down with a flat surface.   A glass works great

Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes
