Roll one roll out into a 8 inch rope. Loop the rope and put the pinched ends together in the center and arrange the loop around one of the flat 3×1 inch strips, pinch the tip of the rope to create a flower petal.

    Wow, does this look good. I don’t like thyme so i will omit that. What about a touch of dry white wine, like in a regular fondue? I have to try this.

    I can’t figure out how to use the dough. The instructions don’t make sense to me. Is there a video?

      Sorry that it seems confusing. I just spoke with the person who does the recipes for the website and she said they had done some step-by-step photos that she will put on that recipe now. She also agreed that she will be doing a video to go along with it! Thanks for taking the time to let us know! That really helps!
