MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 2, 2013

Won't make again. Lots of work for very little flavor differentiation in the layers. I always try new recipes out on my neighbors before adding to my Christmas cookie baking and they agreed with me.

MY REVIEW

I needed to tweak the flour a bit with the marachino layer but everyone loved these. I put the dough in the freezer once it was layered and it sliced perferctly.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 19, 2012

Mine did not turn out so rectangular but everyone liked these cookies, I left out the hazelnut flavoring in the chocolate layer and it was fine.
