  1. I got this from and like it says: roll the dough extra thick, and use a one inch deep cookie cutter or a orange juice glass. I tried it once with margarine...nope... flat. Got to use butter for the fluffyness of it all.
  2. Bake at 450 for about 18'll see when they're ready. Golden Brown and hot...ready for butter or jam!
