A yummy cookie! It is easy and quick to make. Makes a great Colossal Cookie, if you use a small pizza pan and cover with jam.

These are okay. Definitely way too long for cooking - I had to do it for 10 minutes only. The cookies are crunchy. Read More

I like the brown sugar version of this cookie. Like my mother always did I roll mine in coconut before baking. Also a candied cherry is nicer than a maraschino cherry. I find the maraschino cherry tends to bleed and makes the centre of the cookie soft. Read More

These were great! I made them with strawberry jam in the center for a Christmas party and everyone loved them. I'd say that other reviewer either flubbed an ingredient or needs to check his/her oven calibration. Read More

This recipe is great. It is so easy and fast to make. I made it using cherries in the middle jam in the middle and chopped pecans in the middle. The cookies disappear quickly. The only changes I made to the recipe was to use granulated instead of brown sugar and to increase the vanilla to 1 teaspoonful. It also helps if the butter is at room temperature and very soft. Another thing I did with this recipe was to save the egg white and use it as an adhesive for the nuts I used in the centers of the cookies. I whisked the egg white made an indentation in the center of each cookie using the handle of a wooden spoon and then brushed the egg white in the center and added the chopped pecans. The first time I used nuts in the centers I didn't use the egg white and the nuts didn't stick nearly as well. The possibilities are many with this yummy cookie recipe. Read More
