    These cookies were so easy to make. I wasn't sure how the almond filling would go over, but it was a big hit. This cookie has become a new family favorite!

    Delicious

    Carolee Strobel from CHATHAM, VA

    Made these cookies yesterday. Changed the nuts to walnuts, but kept everything else the same. We made a pot of expresso coffee and enjoyed the flavors of the cookies along with our coffee. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Thanks to Aunt Helen especially!

    cecyl ivie from WASHINGTON, DC

    I have made MANY a cookie in my day, but these are SO scrumptious, buttery and flaky. One of the Very Best recipes I've made. When I ran out of Almond filling, I used Poppy Seed and added lemon zest. When I ran out of that, I used jams and preserves. Can't beat this "cookie" - Very Versitile. Keep the recipes coming. Many thanks.

    Aunt Helen, you are a great lady! These cookies are soooo good! It is VERY hard to have just one or two (or three or four). Light and delicious. Everyone will love this fantastic treat!

    Aunt Helen's filed cookies

    Jodi Wilson from ALMA, MI

    I love to bake different kinds of cookies. When I saw this recipe, I thought it may be hard to do a filed cookie. I tried it anyway and it was so easy. Not to mention they were excellent. I usually like to bake with the kids, but I don't think this one is a good one to try with your kids until you have made them a couple times.

    ADD ALITTLE LOVE

    kathleen walker from CORPUS CHRISTI, TX

    THESE ARE AWESOME. I ALTERED THIS RECIPE BY ADDING APPLE PIE FILLING/CHERRY -YOU'RE CHOICE ( JUICES RESERVED & STRAINED) & CREAM CHEESE. THEY ARE BOTH OOOHH SOOO GOOD. SPRINKLED W/ POWDER SUGAR & THE JUICES WERE USED TO DRIZZLE ATOP BEFORE SERVING

    Mary Gates from CAPE CORAL, FL

    This is a great cookie recipe. My husband liked the almond filling as most cookies call for walnuts or pecans. One of the things I like about this cookie is that you can get creative with your fillings. I did one with dates, walnuts and white morsels and also one with apricots, walnuts and white morsels. Delicious!

    Couldn't stop sneeking another

    Sierra Rose from PUNTA GORDA, FL

    So good. Easy to make. I am thinking of trying chopped peanuts, instead of almonds and peanut butter chips, instead of white chocolate. Have fun with this one!

    I double the recipe and use differnt fillings for each log--4 kinds of cookies and only one mess! My favorite is to fill with rasperry jam, semi-sweet morsels and toasted walnuts, or maybe apricot jam, white chocolate and almonds, no, maybe, hmm...

    What's Not to Like???

    Phyllis Musicar from VISTA, CA

    I made these cookies for a potluck dinner I was invited to. There were many wonderful ethnic dishes, including some interesting desserts. My "Aunt Helen's Filled Cookies" disappeared off the plate along with the words "wow, where did you get the recipe?" Verybestbaking.com, I proudly announced. I will bake these cookies again. I'm thinking that they would make a nice touch on my Thanksgiving dessert table.
