Three ribbons of flavor—cherry, chocolate and poppy seed—combine into one tender, Neapolitan-style cookie. My mom made these when we were kids. They are so good. —Karlyne Moreau, Yakima, Washington

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 16, 2010

I had a little trouble with two layers being crumbly and hard to slice, ending up with only 15 cookies. I subbed pistachios for the poppy seeds and made it spumoni cookies, and used butter flavored shortening, although next time I will use real butter. The grown ups liked these alot, but I only give it 3 stars since my kids didn't like them at all. I do think I will make them again and tweek around with the egg amounts to get it moist enough.
