This is a recipe I plan to use for my Christmas give-aways this year. It's from Better Homes & Gardens. I'm putting it here so it will be easy to find and also so I can add it to my Zaar shopping list when I do my Christmas cooking shopping (as all my Christmas give-aways will be from your submitted Zaar recipes!!).

Yum! Rich and delicious. I think I should have made them a little smaller. The cookie and filling ratio was perfect. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
These were great. I had my husband take them to work with him so I wouldn't eat them all. I substituted cardamom for cumin, loved it!
These are delicious. I could not imagine the cumin with the with the cinnamon but it is an unremarkable taste. The marshmallow creme tops this filling off. This goes down as an all time favorite cookie recipe of mine. Thanks for sharing OB Nurse
