These are DELICIOUS!!! My favorite cookie of all time! They do take a while to make but oh so worth it. I made a batch for a baby shower and I secretly watched people only take 1 or 2 and then go back for handfuls! They are absoloutely DELICIOUS!!!


These cookies are so delicious and addictive. I made them heart shaped for a Valentine's Day Tea Party and my friend told me that the girls loved them. I'm planning to make them again, they are just melt in your mouth delicious!


The person below who rated one star obviously didn't put the cream filling inside, as the sweetness comes from the filling! They are one of our family's all-time favorite cookies. Fussy to make, YES, but SO worth the result!!


I made the middle with almond instead of fruit flavored. These are my all time favorite cookie


Make sure to use the same amount of milk as the heavy whipping cream in the recipe. But you can substitute milk for the cream.


This is the best cookie, I first had it at my bridal shower 31 years ago and I still love these and will make them for my daughter


Excellent recipe. These cookies are not to be eaten without the filling as the cookie itself has no sugar. It's the filling that gives it it's sweetness. Be careful......they are addictive. Also, this cookie does not freeze well so don't make more than a day or two ahead.


I have made these cookies for 40 years for holiday's and wedding's. everyone like's them. Joan


These were so good--tiny and flaky. Great for little girls' tea parties or birthday parties with the pastel icing. I put little plates of these on the decorated table along with the birthday cake for my daughter's 7th birthday. She was so thrilled.


These were AWFUL. They reminded me of the communion wafers we had as a kid in church. No flavor, except the flour. I ended up throwing them away. I wouldn't recommend. One good thing, they were easy to roll and cut out with cookie cutters.


OMG Delicious!! These cookies are so worth the extra bit of effort to prepare. So rich and buttery. Everyone that tries this cookie loves it. Make them for weddings, birthdays, Christmas and Valentine's Day!!
