There’s a dark brown knot on the wooden board the family uses to roll these out. If you can’t see the knot through the dough, then you haven’t rolled it thinly enough. If you roll them thinly enough, this recipe can make several hundred cookies.
This recipe might also work for making cookie cups, which you can fill with all kinds of yummy things.
