This is a fantastic recipe!!! Followed the recipe exactly and these cookies are an excellent replacement for pecan pie. Everyone loved them and I will be making these every holiday. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

No Fail Pie Crust III
I made a mistake but it came out perfect. I put 2 cups of Whole Wheat flour in separate bowls and added 1/4 tsp salt. I cut in 1 cup of butter and then measured 1 egg, 1 tsp. vinegar and cold water...forgetting that this measurement was for 4 cups of flour, I put the whole amount into the bowl with 2 cups flour and the salt. I was pleasantly surprised that the dough was perfect and very easy to roll out between layers of plastic wrap and very delicious and flaky. I will use the same measurements again. Sometimes mistakes are rewarding. I may cut back on the butter and use 1 1/2 cups instead of 2 cups. I will definitely use my "mistake recipe" again.

Ice Cream Kolacky
There's hope for this recipe. After almost throwing this dough out the back door, I took a deep breath and decided there must be an answer to making this combo work. I thought about the ice cream and the fact that it needed to freeze up in order to make the dough firm up. I put a cup of the dough in the freezer for about 15 minutes to see if it would firm up. In the meantime, I mixed a cup of powdered sugar and a cup of flour together for rolling out the dough. (My mother-in-law taught me to use an old sheet for rolling out dough..an old German trick which works well and is an easy cleanup). I coated the sheet well with the sugar/flour mixture and them rolled the dough into a ball and then the dough was easy to roll out. I had to keep flipping the dough over to keep it well dusted and kept dusting the rolling pin too. I used a biscuit cutter to cut the circles and they flopped right out of the cutter on to the Pam sprayed cookie skeet. The first batch stuck to the cookie sheet and that's when I decided to use Pam. I put an indention in each cookie and used cherry jam which ran quite a bit. Oh, I also added a 1/2 cup powdered sugar to the dough because it tasted bland. All in all the cookies were a hit with my husband and they did taste pretty good. I don't know if I will try this again because it was a lot of work. Another thing confusing was the softness of the butter. Mine was soft so I did not get a crumbled mixture. I guess the butter should be cold.
