MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 26, 2014

"I made these last night and found that the 2-in cookie cutter was too small. The cookies opened up while cooking. I ended up forming Empanadas instead, crimping the edges with a fork. They cooked much better and stayed closed! Used red plum jam instead."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 17, 2011

"I liked working with the dough. It required 15 min. baking time, when rolled to the recommended thickness. Use ony 1/4 teas. of jam. It wants to bake out. Use a toothpick to secure before baking. Wants to pop open while baking. I'm trying to think what else I could use this dough for. There is no sugar in the dough. This could be a good base for other options. Maybe mini-chips."
