    CoolMonday's Note:

    This is a great recipe for variety (English, French, German, Finnish, Italian, Swedish, Norwegian, Turkish, Mexican, Greek). I have split them two to a recipe but if you want them all, there are 5 separate recipes. They are made from one basic cookie dough. I think some of them may be posted individually but at Christmas I make the entire variety. Each batch of basic dough makes a batch of two of the cookies with the ingredients I have listed.

      I used this recipe for my Wednesday night kid's club cooking class and it was perfect! I made up a big batch of the basic dough and then divided it into 4 of the variations. This recipe fit well into my 'around the year theme'. I used a paste food coloring and so my green filling was quite green but they still were a big hit with the kids.

      The hits of the party...and mind you all were good were French Cherrie Cakes, the Almond Cookies, and the Greek Clove Cookies.(It is so hard to chose a favorite.) This starter dough is exceptional. I have never had much success rolling out cookie dough and this was simple.This cookie collection is now a tradition.

      I'm sorry for the VERY late review! I made the almond filling version for my cookie trays last Christmas. They were well received and I will continue to use this recipe. Thank you for sharing!
