Great plain.. or if you are up for it you can pipe in a cheese cake filling, or a fruit filling. They are wonderful either way. But they do take some practice. They are light and airy with a wonderful crunch.

  11. Quickly roll cookie around spoon handle overlapping the edges to form a cigar shape. Then slide off and put on a wire rack to cool.
