Reviews for Split-Second Cookies
"This is cookie tastes like a perfect Raspberry Thumbprint cookie but without the work! I agree with others- easy, elegant and delicious. Like others I also used almond extract. When making the indent keep in mind not to go to 'deep'. It will make the cookie fragile. When I make these for a dessert platter I often make Taste of Home's Raspberry Nut Pinwheel cookies because they use similar ingredients. Both recipes make an outstanding addition to any cookie platter!"
"Easy to make and delicious"
"SO quick and SO easy. Everyone LOVES them. They can be made with so many different variations."
"Delicious cookies that only look hard to make. Easy and elegant. I used 1/2 tsp. each almond extract and vanilla instead of the tsp. of vanilla, as I love almond with raspberries."
"This is the same recipe my Mother-in-law has made for years!! It is great and so EASY to make!!"
"I make this cookie often for all seasons, with all sorts of jam, peach, apricot, strawberry. It goes together quickly, tastes great, and everyone is impressed with how pretty they look. It's also easy because it's only two pans in the oven. No making and rollowing out lots of little cookies, thought it looks like I took so much time!"
"Easy to make...but make a lot as they go FAST!"
"This recipe is easy. I always have the ingredients on hand. They were truly loved at church fellowship. Make them anytime!Bean"I""
