I made these cookies this morning. I would add 1 more cup of flour to the cookie dough so as to be able to work with it easier.I chilled my dough overnight, and found I needed more flour, then I added it this morning. You will have lots of filling, but make sure to cook it long enough to thicken. The cookies taste great. I used a larger cutter and almost made 2 dozen. I would probably use a 350 degF oven and test the timing, probably about 10 minutes.
