“These take a little work but tastier then store bought and healthier aswell. I make a bunch of these and parcook and freeze. Parcook for5 to 6 minutes just so the dough set up. Remove from oven and cool, wrap well and freeze. To reheat, if you defrost they go mushy ..go from freezer to cookie sheet and cook at 375 for 10 to 15 minutes. All ovens are different so check them often till you get the timing right.”
