  1. I followed the recipe to a t. This cookie dough was basically like working with breadcrumbs, same for the filling. You spend hours making little crumble balls and filling balls to finnaly taste your hard work, and Bland. I have never been so angry at a cookie in my life. Thank you for a wasted evening, wasted ingredients, and 32 terrible cookies.
  2. These are ridiculously good! A little more effort needs to be put into assembling them than with most cookies, but it is well worth it. One suggestion, though. You should describe how big to make each of the balls in the directions, as I was only able to get 24 cookies with the sizes of mine!
  3. I made these cookies today exactly per the recipe. They were delish. My husband and best friend ate the whole batch. FANTASTIC! Thanks for sharing.
  4. I agree with Jezski; these were not only easy but fun to make. I halved the cookie recipe and kept the filling recipe the way it was because of the previous review, but had way too much filling that way. Ah well. Mom said they were very sweet, but that didn't stop her from eating almost the whole (half) batch in two days! I will try these again, maybe with a tad less sugar, or more cocoa, or something. Thanks!
  5. I thought these would be a mess, but they were surprisingly easy to make. Not that much fiddling around. I got 40 cookies with my cookie scoop heaped, kinda cupped each in my hand and molded it around the filling. Since I didn't have filling for the last 8, I mixed in some white chocolate chips for them. Will need to make a tad more pb filling next time. I'm sure the grandkids (and DSIL) will look for these cookies again. They are worth the trouble, especially because the pb is a surprise. They could be prettier but they are darn good. Heather, thanks for sharing. Janet
