Bento Recipe: Nanocookies

This is a real simple one. Get some cookie dough - you're on your own for that, as I buy Pillsbury dough sticks - and, instead of forming decent cookie-sized bits as you're supposed to, make little bitty ones a fourth that size or smaller. I go for marble-sized. Cook them as directed, but shorten the time so they don't burn. (Start checking at the halfway point.)

The result - little bitty cookies that fit well into the small crannies of a bento box without breaking or crumbling! They're kind of the cookie equivalent of oyster crackers.
