I really like the shape.  Are they pessed out as circles and then folded in to half moons?  Love the chicken fat too.  Always looking to use the gallon of smaltz accumulating in the freezer .  I need a car that runs on the stuff:-)

Your rolls look perfectly done,  soft and flaky - like little pillows.

I rolled the cold dough to about a quarter inch and cut three inch rounds and folded them.
