These cookies were very rich and very good. They taste best after being refrigerated. Very fancy looking too. I plan to make these for Christmas presents. I think that next time, I will decrease the sugar in the filling and topping- they were a little too sweet. Everyone loved them!

Very rich, very tasty and rather finicky to make but completely worth it for the annual Christmas baking. A tip - be sure to make the butter cookies small, if you don't get 4 dozen they're too big and will end up being too sweet. As small bite sized treats though they are perfection!



Worked loved these!
