"I've been making these cookies since they first appeared in Taste of Home back in the 90's. I get rave reviews and even 'orders' for more every time!"

"I love these cookies. The dough is so easy to work with. I make them each year for the cookie exchange at the church. I have even made them with just the filling on top, instead of putting them together."
