Rated 4 out of 5 by from sweet & simple this is an easy recipe and the cookies came out wonderful, I would reccomend rolling them out and using a round cookie cutter so that they are easy to bite into

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Recipe My cookies didn't turn out quite like the sample pictured on the Wilton webpage; however, they were very easy to make, the cookie is crunchy on the outside and cake-like on the inside. The cream cheese filling is delicious but this is a very sweet dessert.
