These are really so good! I love it! The taste is comparable to fancy restaurants without having to pay so much for it. The dough's soft and delectable, I ate 2 in one sitting while having amaretto coffee with it. My surface wasn't lightly floured though, I added also about 1/2 cup flour so I can work with it. Keeper! Thank you, PattikayinLA!
