Great recipe! Because I'd been baking sooo many cookies I ended up preparing the dough and then putting it in the fridge and forgetting all about it for a couple weeks. Baked it anyway and it turned out great! Looks much more difficult than it is...actually takes less time than most cookie recipes. Read More

Very bland - after I made these I looked at other Neapolitan cookie recipes on this website and found they called for 1 1/2 cups sugar. Did like the maraschino cherries but not sweet at all if you follow this recipe exactly. Read More

This is a GREAT recipe. I give it 5 stars but I suggest using semi sweet chocolate instead of the unsweetened for the chocolate layer. I used unsweetened and can detect that in the cookie. I tried using tin foil to line the pan but it kept tearing so I ended up using press and seal. I greased the press and seal just to be sure the dough was easy to remove. These are SO EASY to make! Thanks!!! Read More

Just mixed these up and notice the other two neapolitan cookie recipes call for 1 1/2 cups of sugar while this one only calls for 1/2 cup. Is this an error? Oh well I guess I'll find out. Just thought I'd alert other people who may be drawn into making these because of the purty picture like I was. Read More

These turned out good flavored but mine aren't as pretty as the ones in the pictures....will maybe make a double batch next time and layer in a larger pan before cutting. My pink layer was barely there. Read More

I made 6 dozen of these for my Book Club cookie swap and got rave reviews! I used strawberry flavouring vanilla chocolate for the three flavourings. My grandson is asking me to makeover just for him! Great texture and taste! Read More

This was a nice cookie but lacked flavor; for as putzy as it was I'll stick with regular butter cookies. Read More
