"Everyone loves these. Two tips, if the cookies are too sticky to get off the pan, add flour to the mix. Also, use strips of parchment paper and a chopstick to roll. Put the cookie top-down on the paper. Start rolling the paper with the stick, catch the cookie, and keep rolling. Refrigerate for a few minutes to help it set. Then unroll partway and pull the paper out sideways from the cookie."

"These cookies tasted wonderful. In fact I could not stop eating them. However, I could never get them to roll up. I just ended up eating them as flat crispy cookies. They were still incredible."
