With your index finger positioned in the middle, bring the remaining edges together to form the cookie shape. It’s hard to describe and I didn’t take pictures of the process since I needed both hands. Here’s a great tutorial with step by step photos and instructions. I followed her tutorial exactly except instead of tape to hold the cookie together, I used a dab of hot glue.
