Love these. And easy to make. If you don't have a rolling pin you can just pat the dough onto a circle with floured hands. I used a pizza wheel to cut into wedges. Mine cooked for the full 25 min. I made these to freeze for Christmas so we will see how they make out . Well, ok, I didn't freeze them all!
