Reviews for French Christmas Cookies
"Decided to try these out for our family get togethers this Christmas and will definitely make them again. I used mini parchment paper cups in mini cupcake pan (to help hold shape) and they come out super easy, no non-stick spray required. Also I used green food coloring with white chocolate chips for the drizzle and did Christmas trees for the holidays. I will say I goofed on my first batch and they were really messy, but that's because I didn't add enough graham cracker crumbs."
"Agree with CraftyJen, would not make these again!"
"used paper cups in a mini muffin pan. If you spray them first they pop right out. Used peanut butter and mini choc. chips. also used pecans instead of walnuts. pretty good reciped. My husband rated them a B"
"made them for the first time they were a hit !!!!"
"I was disappointed in the texture. Next time I would not chop the walnuts so fine as the chocolate chips seem overwhelming. I have not baked all of them yet and put some miniature marshmallows in the freezer and hope my chopper will chop them up a bit. Think a little white would add to the color--maybe a few chopped cherries too!Jody"
"Not sure what happened. Followed recipe exactly and the result wasn't good. Sorry I wasted all those walnuts :0("
"I used mini muffin pans and non-stick spray and they came out fine. Very good."
"These cookies are amazing!! I made them last year as part of my Christmas cookies and I had to make several additional batches! They were such a hit! I already have people asking me to bring them functions and it's only September! My only trouble was getting them out of the foil cups, so I used baking spray on mini muffin pans and made them without the foil cups."
"This recipe yields 9 1/2 dozen cookies per each batch of recipe (114 each). It uses Graham Cracker Crumbs as a base which may be perfect [measured by the cups full], yet I am thinking of trying crushed Nilla Wafers as an alternate base. It may not be that big a difference, but I am intrigued with not using Graham Crackers [a personal prejudice-they were a daily snack in DC Elementary Schools when I was a youngster. Now I only use them for S'mores, & an occasional pie crust. I have found Kellog's Nilla Wafers work best in most recipes-as an alternate to GC[. Try it your self and give me your feedback. Enjoy!"
