Reviews for Dipped Sandwich Cookies
"Made these today simply to get rid of some spare dipping chocolate and they turned out wonderfully! Great butter cookie made fun with the citrus sandwich and the chocolate coating just makes them all the better."
"I followed the recipe exactly and to get 24 cookies, you had to make fairly thin cookies. Then, as you attempt to assemble the cookies, they often fell apart. The chocolate ended up to be too thick. All in all, trying this recipe was a complete failure. Very disappointed, as I was to take them to an event."
"very good cookie"
"I made this recipe a few years ago. Sooo delicious! A lot of work, though. The lemon cookies are good by themselves (without dipping) and they melt in your mouth!Renee, Livermore CA"
"I've been making these cookies for years. You can dip them in multicolored sprinkles or flaked coconut instead of the nuts."
