I've been making these cookies for years. These always get rave reviews. Many call it their favorites. Don't skip the refrigeration of the dough.

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!!
