These are delicious with a capital 'D'..I have made these to include in my Christmas goody gifts...ahem ahem, I've eaten 3 in a row! The pastry is melt in your mouth, the filling divine, thank you so much!
Exactly like mom used to make when we were growing up. She lost her recipe and was estatic when I surprised her with these. Really easy and really terrific
I made these for christmas and everybody loved them. Instead of rolling the dough into balls and pressing them into the muffin tins, I rolled the dough out and used a flower shaped cookie cutter. they looked very nice. I also had to make a triple batch of the filling. I think because my crust was a bit thinnier because of rolling it out. I had well over 80 cookies.
