Would make this again.
My grandma makes these every year and thought they are quite sticky, they are no the worst I've seen. They are very good and can be great presents. 5 stars

Would not make this again.
dough was very sticky, had to had so much more flour to keep it from being to sticky to roll. Made the other ingredients wash out. Experienced baker here not a new person. 1 star

confused, i\'m new to baking, but the consistency of the dough was not enough to roll out on a board. Did i do something wrong? 3 stars
