MY REVIEW

"Having trouble getting the corn strop to dry so I can put the cookies away. Next time I will sprinkle before baking like I used to."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 18, 2011

"I think the dough is a great consistency for using in a cookie press. The cookies have good flavor, too. At one point, the dough started "misbehaving". I chilled it for about 10 minutes, after which things worked well."

"These are not dry if you make them right. I like to cook mine at the low end of the suggested time - they turn out great!"
