Introduction

These are worth the effort. One of these fresh out of the oven and a glass of ice-cold milk and you're set!
Note: This dough always seems too wet, but it comes out perfectly every time, so don't worry if you can't cut the uncooked dough with a knife as the instructions indicate.

    Wonderful! The only comment I would make is there was too much glaze. Next time I'll cut that in half and it should be just about right. Thanks! - 1/31/11
