Reviews for Cream Cheese Finger Cookies
"My youngest daughter and I LOVE these cookies. They are perfection with coffee or tea. Not everyone wants a sweet tasting cookie all the time; these are just sweet enough for us. :)"
"After reading the reviews, I increased the sugar to 1/3 c. and they were good. My favorite Christmas cookie is made with sour cream. They are T of H Angel cookies. Work the extra work. Everybody loves them"
"I have been making these since I saw then in the magazine -13 years. I only make two cookies for the holidays- these are one of them. Easy to make, friends and family look forward to them each year."
"My family loves these cookies!"
"I have to agree with momsmrf. I too used the recipe from the T.O.H. magazine and wish I had looked it up on the web site to see the reviews before making these. Won't make them again."
"I thought these were quite bland. If not for the powdered sugar, they wouldn't have much flavor. While assembling the ingredients I wondered if the "1 Tablespoon Sugar" was correct. I used an old recipe I had clipped from the T of H magazine and I see that the recipe online is the same."
"[quote user="Kafeutz"].sorry but these were just bad (in my opinion).[/quote]That's ok! Not every recipe is for every person Back to the drawing board, right?"
"I understand that as I am Hungarian and we have several cookies that are not "sweet" but these were just flavorless. When I make my grandmother's recipe for similar cookies you don't really need the powdered sugar as they are just sweet enough...sorry but these were just bad (in my opinion)."
"[quote user="Kafeutz"]Someone at Taste of Home should actually bake a recipe before they put it online or in a Best Loved Cookie recipe magazine..[/quote]I assure you that every single recipe is made several times, tasted and reviewed by the staff in the Test Kitchen. These aren't meant to be a sweet cookie, the confectionary sugar coating is meant to give them just the right touch of sweetness."
"This cookie was AWFUL!!!!! I don't know how anyone rated this so highly..no flavor..no sweetness..I am sure this recipe is incorrect. After I made these and threw them all away I looked at my grandma's recipe for Hungarian cookies that was very similar to this..her recipe called for 5 Tbsp of sugar not one!! Someone at Taste of Home should actually bake a recipe before they put it online or in a Best Loved Cookie recipe magazine.."
"I really liked this cookie. The cream cheese gives it a little tang that you dont expect in a cookie. The only change I would make is less pecans. Next time I make them I will reduce to 3/4 cup, I think it will make the cookie a little more stable."
"My son really liked these, but I thought they would have had a better flavor with all butter and no cream cheese."
"these cream cheese fingers disappear as fast as I can make them--Yumm!"
"can you please tell me what is the self rising flour?"
"Very easy to make, and they taste awesome! I baked these and took them to a cookie exchange, everyone loved them!"
