I don't know...these came out a little cardboard-ish. Haven't frosted them yet....hoping that helps!I will say though that the dough was extremely easy to work with
I've made these a couple times, and it is a family favorite for Halloween. Very easy to roll out once chilled. I've used both frosting and candy sprinkles-they are great without either. I use the candy sprinkles since they don't really need the addition of frosting. A nice balance of spices. Highly recommended!!
