Simple and quick to make, these cookies turned out much tastier than I expected. My husband included them in our holiday cookie-baking lineup this year; he loves fruity sweets. I was concerned about the two-star rating, but suspect the other reviewer may have used milk instead of sweetened condensed milk. We followed the recipe to the letter and the resulting cookies got rave reviews from the hubby, as well as everyone else who Indulged. Yum!

I was really disappointed in these because the recipe looked so good. I mixed and measured everything exactly..... when I took the cookie tray out of the oven after 10 minutes, they were golden brown, but each cookie was sitting in a little puddle of milk. After 5 minutes of cooling, I could not scoop them off the tray with a spatula without making a gooey mess, they would not hold together. So I let them sit longer and still did not have any more success. I did use parchment paper on the trays. Maybe if I try them again I will use 3/4 of the milk called for.
