THE BEST COOKIES EVER. EVERY YEAR I MAKE THESE ALONG WITH OTHER LAND-0-LAKES COOKIES AND I HAVE TO DOUBLE OR TRIPLE THE AMOUNT OF THESE COOKIES.

I have been baking these cookies for the past four Christmas seasons. Everyone absolutely loves them and I have had multiple requests for the recipe. This Christmas season I had a group of friends over for a cookie bake - this was the one cookie in my annual repertoire of treats that the whole group requested that we make. One helpful hint... Instead of spreading the filling onto the cookie, put it in a pastry bag and squirt on a dollup and then press the two cookies together to spread it to the edges. This speeds up the process, is much cleaner and makes for a more appealing appearance.
