Spoon level tablespoons of dough onto a sheet of wax paper and cut each in half. With floured hands roll each piece of dough into a ball and arrange, evenly spaced, on baking sheet. Flatten each ball with a floured metal spatula into a disk about 2 inches in diameter and bake in middle of oven 7 to 8 minutes, or until cookies are set but not hard. Cool cookies on racks. (Cookies will continue to crisp as they cool.)
This recipe yields about 26 cocoa snaps.
