All you taste is the flour. Is an ingredient missing? Waste of good products using this.

I've been making these same soft pastries for years every Xmas holiday. Is enjoyed by my family using strawberry preserve also. Try dusting with confectionary sugar after u take them out of the oven. They melt in your mouth.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 8, 2009

What a terrific snack for all kinds of occasions. I added all different kinds of fillings including mincemeat, chopped apples with brown sugar and even some with chocolate and drizzled frosting lightly over them. My company ate them all and wanted more!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 13, 2008

These are a very nice change to the jam and thumb print cookies. They are not too sweet. I added a few sugar sprinkles on top for some "show" and they turned out fantastic. Easy to make too.
