These melt-in-your-mouth sandwich cookies have a scrumptious filling. I helped my sister make these in high school when she needed a project in her home economics class. She got an A+! —Janice Poechman, Walkerton, Ontario

"I make these every year at Christmas. I give them away as gifts mostly. The one thing I have found, is I mix the cookie batter by hand because it is such a delicate one. They are super delicious!"

"These are very good. The cookie recipe does not call for any salt or sugar (other than the sugar the cut-out cookie is coated in), so the cookies are rather bland and rich. I would add a bit of salt, and be sure to coat them thoroughly in sugar! The sweetness of the frosting eaten along with it helps too. Also, these cookies are more fragile than some, so don't cut them too thin or they won't hold up when frosting. I used them as lollipop type cookies-on-a-stick, being sure to cut them fairly thick, and they were great."

"These are my very favorite cookies. My sister and I made several batches with leaf-shaped cookie cutters for my wedding reception (fall theme). Everyone loved them. I had several requests for the recipe. They also freeze extremely well which is really handy when you need a large amount for an event."

"Very simple recipe to make and uses so few ingredients. I have made these cookies for 35 years ever since I found it in an old Swedish cookbook. They are always the first cookie asked for at family affairs and the first cookie gone. They are called the Swedish cookie in our family. This cookie also is perfect for bridal and baby showers."
