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!
Wonderful cookie recipe - not sure how I missed reviewing this one as I have worked my way through all the variations - more then once! Especially good when needing to make a variety of cookies for the serving platter. Made as posted, it is a great recipe making not only for variety but lovely cookies that we all enjoyed.
This recipe gives instructions on how to make two different cookies using the same basic dough. I used the whole batch to make French Cherrie Cakes. They were a huge hit on my holiday cookie trays! The cookies are so pretty and the cherry/almond flavor is wonderful. I will use this recipe again. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
