My grown children expect these to be in the cookie jar, my grandchildren go straight to the jar looking for them. I keep my cookie jar supplied, as well as another roll in the refrigerator ready to slice and bake as needed! Their lemon and honey flavor with a hint of cinnamon is out of this world! I hope you and your family enjoy them as much as ours have over many years!! Enjoy!
