Maybe I left it in the fridge too long but I could not get this dough to roll out into a rope. It would break and crumble. I let the dough sit out for a few hours and tried again and same thing....
this is my favorite holiday treat!! refrigerate closer to 45 minutes. cook for about 12-13 minutes; only slightly golden brown on the bottom. absolutey delicious!
