MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 23, 2013

"I found these perfect for a fancy Christmas cookie tray or dessert table. The dough when chilled rolled out perfectly. I used a scalloped edge round cutter and had about 18 sandwich cookies. I also drizzled melted white chocolate over the semi-sweet for an additional effect. Beautiful!"

"My family has been making these for decades, and they are fantastic! Be aware that the dough is incredibly fragile, which makes it difficult to roll, but it is TOTALLY worth the effort."
