Man I'm beyond jealous. Typically me and my dad make a batch at Christmas but the schedule didn't work this year so we missed it. We have the same set up (roll, fill, boil, fry) just not as many people. Hopefully for Easter we might get some made...it was the only thing missing from Christmas this year. You make yours smaller which is similar to ours as well. Most homemade ones I've seen look like a mini football...end up with too much dough..bleh! When they are small you can have a whole lot more!
