MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 18, 2013

Sounds like too much milk in the filling. I would add it slowly and stop when I got the consistency I want.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 2, 2013

I would definitely make these again, but would cut back on the milk for the filling! It was way to soft, so I had to keep adding sugar to thicken it. But they are very good!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 30, 2013

I want to try this recepie, but would like to know first if it freezes well? Has anyone tried freezing them?

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 30, 2013

I agree with wolfmommy that recipes shouldn't be rated unless actually tried. Good cooks can determine whether they like the ingredients, but an excellent cook would not rate it until he/she tried it to determine the correctness of amounts.

MY REVIEW

FILLING: Why not use Chocolate Peanut Butter mixed with whipped cream; add vanilla and if needed, add a little bit of the powdered sugar for taste.
