This looked like a wonderful idea, but in execution, they really looked nothing like bats. Each half-circle roll ended up looking more like a bat, so we ditched the cookie face (had decided on gingersnaps due to the difficulty finding chocolate wafer cookies) and ran with it. The kids still loved them (what's not to like about cinnamon rolls, right?) Thanks!
