I agree that these take some practice, but it's well worth it. I ended up making two batches and the first was an edible practice round;) Some notes I took away: * I baked these on an ungreased (non stick) stovetop griddle/grill surface and had no problems with sticking. Actually, I discarded the cookie that I made on a greased surface because it really accelerated the browning process and they weren't as pretty. * The first batch, exactly as directed, was delicious but tasted a little grainy. I reduced the sugar to 1/2 c the second time and didn't have the same problem--they were still perfectly sweet. When I make these again I may use an ultrafine sugar instead. * I took the previous reviews too far on batch #1 and got preoccupied with adding extra water. I think I used a bit too much, and this may have caused the grainy texture as well. My "giving" batch was about the consistency of tacky glue and spread and baked beautifully. Just made these as gift tags for holiday gifts and I'm thrilled. Far less complicated than I anticipated and I will try them again and again. Thank you!
