Do you use Cool Whip or heavy whipping cream in the carton?

Delightful!! You can't get any easier for a sandwich cookie than these. I picked these as an addition to my list of Christmas cookies, but the filling color can be easily changed to fit any holiday.

I make these every year at Christmas. I give them away as gifts mostly. The one thing I have found, is I mix the cookie batter by hand because it is such a delicate one. They are super delicious!

I have made these for the last 2 Christmas's and they are so good and it's true, they do just melt in your mouth. They are so cute and everyone just loves them!

These melt in your mouth cookies have been one of my family's favorites for many years.They dissapear off the cookie platter faster than any others.I often make a double batch and freeze them.

These are very good. The cookie recipe does not call for any salt or sugar (other than the sugar the cut-out cookie is coated in), so the cookies are rather bland and rich. I would add a bit of salt, and be sure to coat them thoroughly in sugar! The sweetness of the frosting eaten along with it helps too. Also, these cookies are more fragile than some, so don't cut them too thin or they won't hold up when frosting. I used them as lollipop type cookies-on-a-stick, being sure to cut them fairly thick, and they were great.

These are my very favorite cookies. My sister and I made several batches with leaf-shaped cookie cutters for my wedding reception (fall theme). Everyone loved them. I had several requests for the recipe. They also freeze extremely well which is really handy when you need a large amount for an event.

Very simple recipe to make and uses so few ingredients. I have made these cookies for 35 years ever since I found it in an old Swedish cookbook. They are always the first cookie asked for at family affairs and the first cookie gone. They are called the Swedish Cookie in our family. This cookie also is perfect for bridal and baby showers.

Great cookie and it takes me back to my childhood. Kind of time consuming to make but well worth it.

Love this cookie. They are always a staple in my home. I use a small star cookie cutter when I make them to make them even more festive.
