I really wanted to enjoy this recipe because it took forever to make. I made a bunch because I thought we could have them during the week. First batch was fine, a little crispy but fine. The second was gummy even though I baked it the same amount of time. I used a different piece of parchment paper each time and only the first two batches did not completely stick to the paper! When you have to cut out strips and do all of this prep work only to have crap at the end it really is a huge waste of time. Might wanna modify this!
