Interesting flavor, nice texture, but a little hard to work with the dough. It needs to be really cold, and agree it doesn't want to seal. I just folded mine over. Probably won't make these again

My husband LOVES these!! They are hard to keep sealed, if anyone has any advice on it, it is welcome!! Def inately use good quality ice cream for the flavor, I used vanilla bean. Next year I will make them with cherry as well as some with strawberry!! If you like cherry pie you will like these!!! Dough is dry but I added a litle more ice crem to get it to come together enough to form the dough and section it.

I just made these cookies for the first time for a bridal shower. It did take some time to make but the cookies were well worth it. They came out delicious and everyone at the shower loved them! They looked absolutely beautiful....

I didn't have the filling as specified, so I put a can of cherry pie filling in the food processor with a little almond extract and it worked. I was sceptical if the pastry would roll out as it appeared dry, but it did. I may run a little frosting over the cookies. The flavor is good.

This turned out like pie crust which I am not a fan of.

I had to add some milk to make it all stick together to roll...but it turned out.
