Very good and a tender crust. I did use the Almond Pastry Filling, which worked out nicely. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to mix something with it or not (I didn't). I used it right out of the can. Was too heavy handed when putting it on pastry, some oozed out of ends. Will probably make again, using less filling so it'll a little less sweet. :-} Only cut into 1" bites.
Hit of the Christmas cookies this year. Lots of work, but worth it. Ran out of filling even with careful measuring, so used pastry dough to make cut out cookies. Quite good that way too!
I made this for several elderly friends that don`t cook anymore but love to eat, and they just loved this cookie, and asked for more. Thanks so much from me and my friends!
It's so much easier if you use almond pastry filling, plus it tastes better. I also decided to make little round outs and fold them over and fill each individually... yes it takes more time, but they look so nice! I made them for thanksgiving and they were requested for Christmas!!!!
These are very easy to make and very tasty. everyone has enjoyed their buttery/almond taste.
Tastes good but quite a bit of work.
a lot of work but well worth it. This is my familys favorite Christmas cookie. it's a keeper!
It's OK, but not great

We’re entering a new phase in our life as new parents – the dinnertime meltdown stage (or the “witching hour” as I like to call it). We rush home from daycare, singing “Wheels on the Bus” as many times as it takes to keep him entertained on the 10-minute car ride. It’s the same song and dance when we get home, while his daddy finishes up work and I’m hectically trying to empty the dishwasher, make dinner and keep our little guy from hiding the dog food between the couch cushions.
