My cousin used to fight over these every Xmas!!!! I use lowfat condensed milk (hey, any little bit helps) and found the vanilla wasn't necessary. Also, there are several websites that sell the green plastic stems my aunt used to use instead of the slivered almonds. Just search for strawberry stems or leaves for marzipan on any search engine. They are cheap too-- like 50 for $2-3.
Maybe I did something wrong, but mine turned out like sticky little lumps of red stuff. They were yucky sweet with a wierd texture. I was disappointed, we even tried refridgerating them longer. don't know what went wrong, but thanks anyway.
Someone used to bring these to Christmas gatherings at my church when I was growing up. I always loved them and looked forward to them every year. After I moved away after high school I searched everywhere for the recipe, bugging family members relentlessly. Nobody could help me. Then I found it on your website after hours of searching. I am overjoyed!!
Honey, you are a workin' this recipe! I loved it so much! Yum, Yum, Yum!
A great item to add color to any Christmas tray, we do a little green piping for the Stem, a family favorite for 18 years.,
For those liking it less sweet I use 1 pkg cream cheese mixed with condensed milk the texture is easy to work with stays wonderful but you must keep them refrigerated till serving. I have tried it with orange jello to make little oranges. YUMMMM I also make a mixture of jello and sugar to roll them in afterwards. It gives them a wonderful flavor. These can be truly a wonderful cookie.and always asked for at cookie exchanges . Thanks for the recipe have modified and used it for 3 years now
The strawberries came out very pretty. I used them to circle my chocolate candy platter on Christmas. Taste-wise, I wasn't very fond of them.
Tried this one last night--neither the taste nor the texture were very appealing. I agree with the cruchberry review. People with a sweeter tooth than I may enjoy this, though.
