I've made these cookies to give in gift boxes every Christmas for the last 5 years. They are so quick, easy, beautiful and delicious! Recently I found myself with only whole wheat flour on hand. Fearing the cookies would be too dry, I melted the butter instead of just softening it, and after adding the filling, baked for 10 minutes instead of my customary 12. The cookies turned out great. I've used a variety of fillings too - cherry, loganberry, strawberry, etc. It's great to have such a reliable recipe to pull out when you need a special treat.
Beautiful cookies for any time of year. I made them for my Christmas tree decorating party. My little one said Santa sure would love em too! It's true, They are delicious and pretty. I had a tough time at first shaping the dough but figured it out. Worth the effort for a new recipe to WOW my familiy and friends.
I absolutely love these, I've made them numerous times and always are delicious.
These cookies are amazing! I would make them again with or without any type of filling.
I have made these every Christmas for last six years and friends and family LOVE it! It definitely makes the list of cookies to bake every Christmas.
