I made these on one of my cooking days. Some days I need quick and easy dishes, but I was on vacation, so was making some fun things. I made these for my grandkids and I took them over warm, since they only live 5 minutes away. Next time, though, I think I should have my grandkids help me. they would love punching the dough and making shapes-I wonder what shapes a 4 year old would make! lol
