These did not make my favored Christmas cookie list. My family thought they were dry and not worth the ingredients.

These cookies were a real hit with our family. They loved the chocolate interior and the confectioners sugar on the top. I might omit the vanilla in the confectioner's coating because it wasn't as smooth as I'd wished, but the taste overall was still great. The kids are clamoring for more, so they are going to be on my Christmas cookie list. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Linda!
