Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Well, it was easy enough for me to do, considering I don't know much about rolling dough. I can't say anything about how it tastes, obviously, but my two lap dogs both ate theirs when I offered them one. I used all purpose flour instead of wheat flour. Other than that, I followed the recipe. I think I'll practice making these again sometime.
