These cookies were amazing! I made them for easter, and word got around and people demanded them!! I followed the recipe exactly, and I agree the dough was sticky, but while mixing, i just mixed with my hand since I found mixing with a fork very difficult. The more you work with the dough the less sticky it becomes, and the outcome is well worth it! I also was confused about dipping in sugar .. but I dipped the cut dough in granulated sugar on both sides and they were amazing! Thanks so much KaDo!!!
These are so Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I forgot about these cookies - my Mom made these cookies with pastel colored icing for baby showers or easter when I was growing up. They are sooooo good! The cookie almost reminds me of a pie crust, light and flaky. Thanks for the recipe from the past - I made them for christmas with red and green icing, and large red, clear and green crystal sugar - they made a terrific addition to my cookie trays! These are a real winner!!!
KaDo, these were lovely soft cookies with a delicious pink icing. I used white sugar for dipping them in. I didn't have any problem with the dough, but I did add a little extra flour when rolling out. I picked the cookies up with a knife, it worked really well for me. Thanks for sharing these pretty cookies with us.
I would have given this recipe 5 stars except the dough was impossible to roll out. I followed the recipe exactly, but It was much too soft and sticky. I was not able to cut any shapes because when I tried to pick them up they fell apart. I ended up patting a small amount of dough onto the cookie sheet, cutting my shape, then removing the excess dough from around it. That was the only way I could think of to make it work. Besides that, I was also a little confused about what sugar to dip the cookies in. The powdered sugar? I ended up sprinkling a little bit of granulated sugar on each cookie before baking. Despite all of this, the final result was great. I took them to an Easter brunch and they were a big hit. I dyed half the frosting pink and the other half purple--they were adorable!! To finish, I sprinkled a little bit of powdered sugar on top once they cooled. Thanks for posting!!!
I forgot to post about these cookies...they were gone the moment I sent them out. My family, who is originally from Sweden all came up and raved about how good they were! A+
Wordeful cookie! I used low far milk instead of half-and-falf and added an extra teaspoon butter. I left the dough to rest for 90 minutes in the fridge cause I had to go someplace. But those were the only changes I made. I also used red colour and had a pink colour frosting, like the photo. I found that they rise enough, after baking so next time I'll make them thinner! Thanks KaDo!
If there were more than 5 stars, this darling of a recipe would get them. I just LOVE these cream cookies. And they are simply gorgeous. Made for PAC 2007 but I'll make them again and again, I'm sure!!! Thanks, KaDo! (:
