    I am making these and finding the directions are not complete. My dough is very sticky probably needing more flour. I cannot get the dough in a bag to freeze. Are they roll outside using a cutter or drop? Too little information and no video to help. If you can answer my concerns that would be helpful. Otherwise I’ll just PUNT! Cannot rate yet.
