“When visiting a friend, I helped organize her recipe collection into scrapbooks,” recalls Theresa Myslicki of North Fort Myers, Florida. “When I found this recipe, I asked to copy it. I served the elegant dessert at my bridge club luncheon to oohs and aahs.” TIP: Fill these five-ingredient cookie cups with any flavor of ice cream, frozen yogurt or sorbet.

"I, too had a problem with the dough running together as it baked. They did taste good, though. Also, I didn't use all the first day, and the remaining ones flattened out. Will probably not make this again - not worth the trouble."

"Outstanding. Guests ooohed, aahed, & yummed. Baked only 2 at a time for the 8 min. 1st couple, I used larger custard cups which didn't work at all; "cups" were cookies. We still used them & they still tasted delicious, just weren't baskets, so not as attractive."

"It's late afternoon and I've just tried to make them for a luncheon tomorrow. Big mistake. They separated & spread all over, and I tried to get them back into 12 cookies. I did get them draped over my cups, but they still look raw and the butter is oozing at the bottom. Sending DH out to buy some Peppridge Farm Assorted Cookies to serve with the fruit & ice cream!"

"This tasted great, but after two frustrating batches, they still did not look right and most were soft and flexible."

"This is really good and tasted quite yummy, but I had the same problem as another person comments on. I added 6 separate spoonfuls to my baking sheet, but it all ran together in one big square. So once I removed it from the oven I had to quickly try separating them back into 6 sections. After a minute or so I was able to drape them over the cups, but they turned out great! But just a little more effort.

It could be because of the fact I mixed the flour and nuts together but should of folded the nuts in last? I will try it again and maybe boil the mixture a couple of minutes."

"Easy, elegant looking and quick. My guests thought I fussed for hours to make dessert. Next time I'll add the chocolate bottom. Thanks for the great idea."

"My husband takes a medication that reacts really bad when he eats nuts, so, when we need a substitute for nuts, we use roasted unsalted soy nuts. Hope this helps you out with this recipe."
