Would make this again.
I love this recipe, my family has made it for years. Baking is a science and this recipe must be precise! Follow this recipe to a T and you will always have results. It's not a recipe to rush, it's a process, I usually break down into 3 days, a)make dough/refrig. b)roll-out "thin" & bake c) put filling in. It freezes well! I like to put almond flavoring in the crust. It's a festive pretty cookie as you can color the filling to the deco of the season. This is not a cookie to throw together or for beginners. You must be precise in cut outs to match up. This is a favorite by all at our family Christmas. One tip: in rolling out, use (sifted) powder sugar instead of flour, but the less the better. 5 stars

The first time I made these cookies, they turned out very well -- a little bland so I decided to use peppermint extract in the future. The next two times I made them, they were a disaster, puffy and mishapened. I mix and shape all of my Christmas cookies and freeze the dough so they're ready to bake at the last minute. Possibly that doesn't work with these cookies, but it should. Anyway, I probably won't make them again after these last two experiences. Too bad -- when they're right, they look great on a cookie tray. 5 stars

These cookies were great! I made them for the first time and I probably didn't roll them out as thin as directed, but they were still wonderful. I will absolutely be making these again. I will most likely make them with other flavors for the filling with different colors for each. 5 stars

these cream wafers have been in my family for years now. i suggust that whom ever makes these to use real butter only in cookie and the frosting. use extra cream if needed not water. also you have to roll these paper thin and of course poke the fork in them before putting in the oven and you should have no problems with them coming out flat.good luck

Would not make this again.
I had been WAITING to make these cookies I searched on the site for the perfect 'give away' cookies this year for all of my co-workers. The cookies came out terrible! Rolling them out was VERY challening and then getting them from my table to the cooking sheet was even worse. They all were oddly mishapen and not uniform at all. When i used flour to make it easier when i went to dip the cookies in the sugar, the sugar wouldn't stay! So I resorted to making balls and smashing them in the palms of my hands which went a lot smoother but still made them oddly shaped. I finally got them all cooked and out of the oven and made my frosting middle. I tried them and they tasted bad. Not unedible or anything but nothing i'd ever be proud to say i baked. For the frosting i used almond extract instead of vanilla and maybe that's why, but it was gross. When i tried to pick up the cookies to sandwhich them together the cookies crumbled. I don't know why?! This recipe is definitly not easy and not for an average baker. I wouldn't reccomend this recipe to anyone. Good luck if you do decide to try it! 1 star

This recipe has been in my family for generations. We don't make them as a "sandwich", however; we frost them with a buttercream frosting. We also cust them into shapes with a cookie cutter (my mother always used a tiny star, as do I--about 1 1/4 inch). They melt in your mouth! They get raves at every get-together I make them for. 5 stars

I love this cookie and so does everyone else. But lately I've had trouble. Thc cookie goes into the oven perfectly round, but comes out wierdly misshapen. Help! I've tried freezing the cookie tray, baking on parchment, etc. Doesn't help. Thanks PS I always use butter 5 stars

We put the roll in the freezer to facilitate cutting. One of our friends just lumped them out and they still were fantastic, even with no filling. 5 stars

These have to be the best cookies I have ever tasted in my entire life! They melt in your mouth. This year I'm going to make numerous batches & give them as gifts. Whoever came up with this recipe was/is a God-send. 5 stars
