I have made these cookies for years. They are not a real sweet cookie so they are perfect on your cookie tray for those who don’t prefer a real sweet treat. The raspberry in the center is a nice pop of flavor. They get requested by my family year after year.

Can't wait to try these. I think I'll fill with a chocolate ganache instead.

It's my son's favorite cookie and I even use gluten free flour and sugar free pudding mix:)

After reading the previous review, I increased the flavor by substituting 1/4 cup of the flour for 1/4 cup baking cocoa powder. They are real rich tasting. I will make again. Note: Recipe only make about 28 cookies.
