- A pizza cutter works well for cutting dough into sections.
- A mini-food processor makes quick work of chopping nuts.

Been making these for years. THE BEST! Dough freezes very well. Add some chopped chocolate or mini chips. That's the NJ way! Enjoy Also if you leave out the sugar you can make it with a savory filling!
Really delicious! My husband is from New York, and said these are exactly how he remembers them.
Looks to be a great recipe. Just wish the material was more compact, so the print out would all be on one side of the page. and the other side could be used for a different recipe. Waste not want not.
