MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 14, 2011

i thought these were fairly bland tasting and had a dry consisancy. for all the work that goes into making these, i would not make these again!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 6, 2010

I really enjoyed the taste of these cookies and they were pretty simple to make. I had a hard time cutting them into "1/4" wafers and more often than not wound up making them up to 1/2 inch thick ones. I guess I need more practice making rolls and such. Overall, they are unique and a decent cookie. I just wish mine had turned out more like the picture.
