      I did a few things different, but not enough to change my rating of wonderful. I used some flavored frosting I had on hand. The dough mixed up nicely and was very easy to work with. I only put the dough in the fridge for a few hours. One roll I squared off per directions and used raspberry frosting, the other I left round and used orange frosting. They were delightful little sandwich cookies to serve at my tea! (I didn't use any nuts)
