My family loved these cookies and I love the fact that I could make something so elegant looking in such a short amount of time. Once they passed the family test, I made 2 recipes of the cookies to take to a Christmas Fling function and there was not one cookie left on the platter. I colored the filling with different Christmas themed colors and they were a real hit. Thanks for making me look like I knew what I doing because I do not bake!
Cute cookies. They still taste just like the store bought sugar cookie dough so if your looking to make a "home-made" type cookie you may be disappointed.
