"I used the recipe to make thumbprint cookies with raspberry jam instead of the sandwich filling. I made 30 small thumbprint cookies. Delicious!"

"These look delicious but I have a question: the filling calls for softened butter but the recipe doesn't say to refrigerate the cookies. Won't the butter spoil if not refrigerated?"

"They are delicious. The only thing is that 2/3 cup of dough to cover them was not enough for my 30 cookies. I left some uncovered. They looked different but were just as good."

"This was my 2nd year to make these for Christmas cookie baking. They are so delicious - even if you don't like coconut - it just has great flavor. I used black raspberry spreadable fruit this year instead of rasp preserves and they are once again a hit! Quick and easy to make too. Will make every year!"
