This was excellent! It looked so pretty on my appetizer table, and tasted so good. I baked them and froze them. I just let them thaw and did not reheat. They were great. I may try with regular sharp yellow cheese next time. Thanks for posting.
Came together easy & fast. After baking, my thumbprints needed tamping down a little as they puffed up, not leaving much room to fill. I chose not to reheat before serving; just put the jellies (green & red) in small zipper bags, snipped off a corner & piped them in. The result was a nice buttery shortbread texture that complimented the jelly. These added a lot of visual appeal to my Christmas appy table & only confused the kids who were scouting for cookies ;-)
I have had this in my cookbook for so long and I finally made these for my Christmas party and they were delicious! I used red and green filling for the jelly (Hot Pepper Jelly Hot Pepper Jelly and Red Pepper Jelly Red Pepper Jelly) for a festive touch. I rolled some in nuts and left some plain and I actually liked the plain cheese ones better but some my guests liked the nuts. The bases freeze so well and it allowed me to do some advaced prep so I could enjoy the party. Thanks for posting your winning recipe here for us all to try :)
Yummy! I used a mix of white cheddar and yellow cheddar and filled them with some homemade pepper jelly. These were delish!
These were great!!! If you like cheese straws and red pepper jelly, you will love them. I liked them better without nuts, but my husband preferred the nutty ones.
Turned out well. Did not need the water as the nuts stuck simply by rolling. Guests enjoyed them. Thanks.
Delicious! I had to add a few drops of milk to get the dough to come together, but these were easy to make, tasted great, and everyone at Easter dinner loved them! I think the sharper the cheddar, the better.
I added a dash of milk to help with the dryness and they turned out wonderful (except for my brother-in-law missing the part about them not being dessert cookies)
These are fantastic. A couple of weeks ago, I saved your recipe in my cookbook, printed out a copy and brought it to work for a friend. He made your recipe and brought me some that he had put in an air tight bag. I took them home, put them in the oven at 350 degrees for 3 minutes and then filled them with my hot pepper jelly. They are so delicious and he was pleased that you had easy to follow instructions and he also froze some. I can't wait to make them myself for the holidays. Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipe!
