These cookies are good and I received a lot of compliments on them. However, they are very messy to make. The only way I could mold the dough around the caramel half was to spray my hands with Pam about every third cookie - so it was time consuming and messy. Also, after the cookies cool, the caramels harden. Even though they are not my favorite, I did get a lot of compliments.

I also thought they tasted great but were a bit messy. I actually didn't have a problem molding the dough around the carmel, but I had a problem getting them off of the cookie sheet without crumbling a bit, and then getting them off of the cooling rack because the carmel would stick to it. But if you can get over that, they are tasty!
