Reviews for Strawberry Cream Cookies
"These are great cookies and one if my son's favorites. If I didn't make them every Christmas, I would be in trouble!"
"These are a family favorite. I make them throughout the year and switch fillings. Plum jam, apricot jam, tart cherry and even fig. All delicious and they freeze and ship well."
"Made these for a Christmas cookie swap. They're now a favorite that I make year round."
"Excellent! Easy prep - and the taste can't be beat. Thanks for sharing."
"One of my top 3 favorite cookies ever both in taste and ease of prep. Put the jelly in a plastic bag snip if the corner and pipe in...makes it so much easier!!"

"I am not a huge fan of this type of cookie but my husband loves this recipe. So it is a keeper"

"I always try out new cookie recipes every December. This one is now a family favorite. I made over 6 batches in December."
"Yum, yum and YUM! These were easy to make and turned out great. Next time I will try other jam flavors too. The dough is super yummy - I think it would be great just to mix in nuts or chopped cranberries and skip the jam part. Could be very versatile!"
"That does sound like a lot of vanilla, but I still can't wait to try them!"
"3 tsp. vanilla seems like a lot. Is this amt. correct?"
"Loved these cookies! They were part of my Christmas baking this year and everyone loved them. Very easy to make!"
"Yummy!! I used raspberry jam and they were great -- got lots of compliments from my cookie exchange. I rolled the dough in granulated sugar before I put the jam in. It made them sparkly and extra yummy!"
