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.

  7. Bake one sheet at a time in the beginning, till you get the hang of these.
  8. Bake for 4 to 5 minutes until edges are golden brown. Do not over bake.
  9. Take a wooden spoon with a round handle and cover the bottom part of the handle with vegetable oil. This will make the cookies slide off easier.
  10. Remove the cookies from the oven and take them off one at a time. Flipping them onto the handle of your wooden spoon.
  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.
