Directions:
Take 1 sheet, roll it, cut in half so there are 6 inches on each side. Now you have two long rectangles. Cut about 12 strips. Each sheet makes about 24-28 cookies.
Wrap each one onto an old fashion clothes pin that is coated in Crisco/flour. Cook them with clothes pins inside and remove before completely cooled. Follow directions on box.

Once cooled, fill with icing and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

2 sheets per box = 4 dozen cookies
