1 (16 ounce) container
chocolate fudge frosting
This is a really good shortbread cookie recipe. The only change to the recipe that I made was to add a teaspoon of vanilla. For the topping, I melted semi-sweet chocolate chips and spooned it in the middle of each cookie. I also sifted the cookies with powdered sugar after done.
not the shortbread taste I was hoping for... more like biscuit dough than cookie dough. Would probably be better with real butter, vanilla, more sugar and less flour.
Great recipe!!!!!!!!!!!! I added a little more sugar, eliminated the pecans, and substituted the chocolate for grape jam.
My family absolutely loved them and my kids enjoyed putting on the thumbprints. My husband suggested I could also use the large side chocolate chips instead of the frosting.
Delicious! I was looking for an eggless recipe as my fridge was running low on groceries and this recipe fit the bill. Cured my sweet-tooth in a bad way!! I also used Splenda instead of sugar and it still turned out great!
I found these cookies to have an excellent flavor, but they were hard to shape. I added a little bit of water and that seemed to help. Next time I make them I will probably add even a little more water. These are very versatile. Instead of filling them with chocolate frosting, I filled them with peanut butter and then dunked them in chocolate.
I made this one late night when I couldn't sleep and was board on the internet... Its a pretty easy recipe to follow and would be fun to do with little kids, because of it ease of making (I don't have a mixer so I have to mix by hand) and not needing too many things to make it... I can understand how people can find it tastes like flour and so solve this problem I added a little vanilla, and about an extra 1/2 cup of sugar ( just free poured and tasted till it was a little sweet) I didn't add pecans because I don't usually have any on hand, so instead I put a small teaspoon of Raspberry Jam before baking them in the oven... I put them in a preheated over at 300 degrees for 10mins then took them out and let them cook on the stove off the heat of the pan. I finished them off with a light sprinkling of icing sugar. Not sure how they will turn out and if they will be a hit with the roommates as other recipes have been off this site so far but we'll see.
These tasted like flour. I frosted them and they still tasted like four.
