"Kind of hard to fold into shape, and the fortune sometimes get stuck to the inside of the cookie. But SUPER DELICIOUS and super easy! I will make these again, but only as regular cookies."

"They where very good it is hard to get them folded in to the shape with them being so hot out of oven and if you wait they are too hard. The taste was great and I would try to make them again."
