These go quicker if you roll 1/3 of the dough between two sheets of plastic wrap, then just spread the suger over both sides of the sticky dough before cutting out. You can only roll once, but as with any pastry, the more you roll the worse it gets. Also try taping 3-4 forks together separated by skewers. Then you only have to tap each cookie once! I've made 300+ of these before, and these were real time savers!
Sorry, but we didn't like these very much. They were very easy to make - a little time consuming with the chilling, rolling, cutting and dredging with sugar, but that's just par for the course. I did like the crumbly texture of these cookies. They are a delicate cookie, but I didn't have a problem with them being too crumbly to handle as some people have had. It feels strange saying this as most people seemed to have the opposite opinion, but we found these cookies to be very sweet. I know there is no sugar in the recipe, but the sugar on the outside and the sweet frosting definitely compensated for that. I might make these again if someone asks for them, but I won't be making them regularly. Sorry, but they didn't impress me...
They take a little time but are worth the effort. Instead of making a fork prick square on each cookie I found it easier to make three fork pricks in a row. When I did the square sometimes the dough would break before I could get it to the baking sheet.
I've know these cookies to be called CREME WAFFERS because they melt in your MOUTH.. and they get better each day!!! These are a must have every holiday season. I double the recipe and match two batches.. One to give as treats and one to keep as the whole family simply devours these cookies up. Some tips... This recipe seems like to fly by if you have a partner helping you. Also the tip with taping 4 forks together is a HUGE time saver with pricking your dough. Also they need to be only lightly golden. They are extremely fragile but that is the joy in them.. melting in your mouth!!! When it comes to frosting them... I used the buttercream frosting recipe halfed it and made green frosting and red frosting as well as some white. But use your imagination and use jelly as somebody else suggested or even a lemon filling would be awesome!!
I got compliments on these shortbread type cookies. Some tips: don't try to do elaborate cookie cutter shapes as these cookies are too crumbly. Also, make sure they're a nice golden brown before you take them out of the oven--they need more baking than just waiting until they're puffed up.
Simply Addictive. We did cookie baskets for Xmas this year and this was a hit. Had husbands and wifes ticked off that one or the other ate more than their share of this cookie. We stuffed them with the cream provided. Added Cocoa and chocolate to a bit of it for some and strawberry jam for others. YUM!
These cookies are cute but just way too buttery for me. I kept mine refrigerated because of the raw egg yolk in the filling...so that may be why they seemed so greasy.
Didn't have any trouble with the dough crumbling. Followed recipe exactly.
