      I have never made rolled cookies and I doubled the batch! I mixed them one day, then rolled them the next day and on the third day I baked them. Because this was my first time making rolled cookies I think I can improve on my rolling technique. They turned out very pretty and I loved the caramel flavor with the almost shortbread type of cookie. I will make these again and can't wait to let my friends try these delicious cookies. This is a wonderful, unique recipe and I would have never thought to make such a cookie or that such a delightful cookie even existed. So THANK YOU for posting this recipe. I hope more people try this tasty cookie!

      I made a 1/2 batch of these to sample, to go on my cookie tray this year, that I will be serving for the holiday. They came out great! I did add in walnuts with the filling and it was a great addition. Thanks for sharing!

      I made these cookies as an addition to 7 other kinds of cookies I gave to my family during this past Thanksgiving. These were a HIT!! I made the dough a week in advance before actually baking them and they kept really well in the refrigerator. I also saved a half dozen for my husband & I to eat with cold milk....mmmmmmm!
