These are really good and easy to make. I like doing festive treats, so it was perfect. I'm sure it would be good with sugar cookie base, as well.

    Excellent for helping kids...

    Cindy Rodriguez from Avondale, AZ

    I made these cookies for our July 4th celebration and they went so quickly that I had to make a second batch. This recipe can be made very quickly and I had the help of my grandson and niece. I baked the cookies, prepared the fruit and cream cheese the night before. Then had the kids help me decorate them on the 4th. We had just a few left of the second batch that I put into the refrigerator and found them the next morning to be a little soft. Suggest that they all be eaten the same day or decorate as needed. The kids and adults really loved this recipe.

    A beautiful treat

    Jacqueline Harvey from FRIDAY HARBOR, WA

    These are truly pretty, but take a great deal of time. If they are not all consumed after decorating, they will become soggy, so make these for a large crowd and leave them wanting more!

    Very Good

    The cookies were very good, but I used chery pie filling instead of the strawberry. I used white nestle chocolate chip on my cooikes. I will make these all the time. I may used blueberry pie filling next time.

    I loved these cookies! Not only are they pretty, they taste fabulous! The only problem I had is that we didn't eat all of them the say day and the rest got soggy. But I will definatly make these cookies again. Maybe a summer get together, where I know they will go fast!
