    Very good cookies. I followed the recipe exactly. Except for the chocolate part, they aren't very sweet. I'll double the amount of sugar next time, because my family loves sweet cookies. I was able to make 22 fingers from this batch. Thanks for the recipe. I'll make again.

    I made these cookies for christmas gifts. It was a big hit! I doubled the recipe, and was asked not even a week later for the same cookies. Thank you for posting!!!!!!!

    AMAZING! My favorite cookies! For halloween, you can shape the cookies into long fingers, and dip one end into red chocolate (colored white chocolate).

    Excellent flavor. These are rich and addictive. A can of solo filling is 12 1/2 ounces, and half the can came out to about 1/2 cup. I wish I had made a double batch -these are awesome and so attractive. Note: watch these carfeully - I found that in my oven, I needed to pull these out a few minutes early to keep them from getting too brown. I would start checking at 15 minutes.

    You may find chilling the dough to work alot better for you. Or you may need more flour as you work it into finger shape.
