Reviews for Raspberry Nut Pinwheels
"I have been baking cookies for many years and never had as much trouble as with this recipe. My dough was chilled but when putting it between the floured waxed paper, it still stuck to the paper and came apart. I must have done something wrong as these other reviews sound wonderful."
"I looooove these cookies. Cut them with dental floss to keep that nice round spiral."
"This is a rich, crisp and beautiful cookie! Followed directions exactly. Cutting the cookies very thin and using a ruler I was able to have 39 cookies. Although this recipe is a little time consuming it makes a very attractive cookie. As a volunteer food editor for Taste of Home magazine my suggestion is to follow the directions exactly. This recipe will not disappoint."
"Good recipe. But it does not make 3 1/2 dozen. More like 1 1/2 dozen. Just a heads up"
"Tasty and impressive looking. Thank You."
"I've made these cookies for the past three years (tomorrow will be the fourth) in a row and they are great! Really easy, and really good! Every year I'm asked if I will be making these!"
