These were really fun to make and my daughter thought it was really yummy! I was in a sugar kick so i added more sugar to the dough. Baked it for about 12 minutes. The 2nd time I made it I rolled the dough in a log flattening the sides wrapped in siran chilled then sliced. I thought it was much easier doing it this way. Read More
