these were fun for my kids to help make, and they enjoyed eating all the scrap pieces that i baked. if rolled in brown sugar and cinnamon, these taste a little like donuts when fresh out of the oven. make sure your oven has finished preheating. if not, these tend to burn on the bottom. and, make sure your cookie cutter is sharp. the open kind (made with one flat strip of metal) work best. i'll make these again for a quick holiday treat, or just to keep my kids entertained on a rainy day.
