Wow these are fantastic! My friends loved them and everyone couldn't get enough of them. Keep posting more fantastic recipes you have the BEST recipes so far there JanetW! Keep it going! all i have to say is WOW
The cookie part is very good but way too much shortening in the frosting. I added more marshmallow creme and powdered sugar to cover the shortening flavor. I would only use about 1/3 cup or less of the shortening. But overall, this was a good recipe. These are very good frozen also.
My girls and I got into a bit of a baking spree one day and decided to make these as well. They turned out looking like what I expected, but not exactly tasting like what I expected. They didn't taste bad, I think I just expected them to be a little more rich and indulgent. (My oldest didn't really care for them.) The only thing I really didn't care for was the taste of the filling. I could sort of taste the shortening. I was using Crisco sticks, and it could be that the measurement markings weren't quite accurate, although the consistency of the filling seemed appropriate. I will probably make them again for the kiddos, but not for myself.
