Fantastic!!! These were absolutely delicious fancy looking cookies but easy to make. Wonderful with a cup of tea! After you mix the dough you need to roll it into little 1 inch balls and then press them down. It wasn't mentioned in recipe. Great for a special occasion!
These had a wonderful flavor but they didn't turn out like I had imagined. I didn't notice the review about pressing down the little dough balls so I just left them round and baked them (thinking they would spread out) but they didn't. What I had were a bunch of little cookie balls. There was no way I could make a sandwich out of them since they were so puffy so I got a little creative...I put the filling in a pastry decorating bag and piped little designs on the top of my cookie balls. They looked so cute like little white truffles. I will definetly make these again and maybe change the food coloring color and decorate these with the filling on top since they looked and tasted so perfect. I bet you could also keep them puffy and drizzle some melted white chocolate over them also. For the actual recipe my only minor changes were to use 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp almond extract instead of the 1 tsp of lemon (didn't have any on hand) and I also put about 1/2 tsp of lemon zest in the cookie dough (not just the "filling" - topping). They were soooo tasty! I'm only giving 4 stars because the recipe did not mention shaping and flattening the dough balls.
These were really delicious. I brought them to work to share and everyone loved them. The next time I make them though I think I'll roll them into 3/4" or 1/2" balls to make a smaller cookie that you just pop in your mouth. They were a little messy to take several bites of because of the confectioners sugar. Another note to those trying the recipe.. mine didn't spread at all in the oven (which is alright) Just to keep in mind.. the shape & size they are going in the oven will be the same coming out. Thanks for sharing!
I really enjoyed making these. Thanks to the reviewers who pointed out that you need to flatten the dough once rolled into balls. I didn't use the food colouring but the lemon juice made the frosting a nice colour anyway. I couldn't believe how good these looked when finished. Taste good too. Thanks
The cook recipes was bland not nearly enough lemon flavor. I recommend chilling the dough before baking for better shaping. Filling was like a goo but flavorful. Confectioners sugar didn't hold to the sandwich.
The flavor and idea of these are great but the recipe really needs to be more specific about the size. I made one inch balls which I flattened but they still came out thick. However I don't know if it's worth it to make them smaller because they were kind of messy to fill. I will say that I was pleasantly surprised at how the filling gelled and did not drip out when I took a bite. They hold up nicely so far though I can't imagine trying to transport them.
These are divine. I shaped them into bite size pieces and flattened them out prior to baking. This was my first attempted at a sandwich cookie so wasn't sure on how much filling to use per cookie (thought it might ooze out or something) so I didn't use very much. Next time I will cram as much of the filling in as humanly possible because it was soooo good. I also didn't worry about the icing powder on the top they still looked lovely. I will be making these again......very soon.
