A dear friend shared this with me last night,she said they were made when she was a little girl..and more like a pastry then a cookie... she is 83 yrs young.. I've not tried it..but she is a darned good baker and trust her judgment... she also said she drizzles melted chocolate over cookie... she uses round clothes pins wrapped in foil to wrap the dough around..and then pipes in the filling.. this is how she wrote it out....I'm wondering if this a type of creamed horn... not to sure about the 100 cookie count... but I'm wondering it this will create an appetizer type shell.. with cream cheese...pimento or something along that line piped instead of the filling she gave me.. mmmm wondering.. the dough reminds me of pie crust in a way.. maybe this will make an appetizer cup.. I've got to give this a try... I'll give it a go tomorrow and let you all know.. I have everything in my pantry except the eggs... i need to walk over and check on her anyway and borrow some eggs...LOL..
