  • These are delicious with a capital 'D'. I have made these to include in my Christmas goody gifts...ahem ahem, I've eaten 3 in a row! The pastry is melt in your mouth, the filling divine, thank you so much!

  • Exactly like mom used to make when we were growing up. She lost her recipe and was ecstatic when I surprised her with these. Really easy and really terrific

  • I made these for Christmas and everybody loved them. Instead of rolling the dough into balls and pressing them into the muffin tins, I rolled the dough out and used a flower shaped cookie cutter. they looked very nice. I also had to make a triple batch of the filling. I think because my crust was a bit thinner because of rolling it out. I had well over 80 cookies.
