MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 7, 2013

"These tasted delicious .... if only the cookies didn't spread so wide .... They wouldn't stay together when I took them off the cookie sheet and all fell apart!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 14, 2012

"This is a family favorite that is a must every Christmas. I find that if I grease the pan and take it off the pan right away, it does really help. The parchment paper would help, too. I also double the recipe so that I have a couple of rolls to slice and bake a little bit later for a delicious treat."

"Now these tasted great! You could really taste the raspberry filling. The hint about using Parchment paper really did help. No problems at all. Will be making these again."

MY REVIEW

"I make these every Christmas and my family loves them! They are not really all that difficult to get right. They do stick a little but not enough to stop me from making them."
