    My 18 yr old son made these and the cookies came out exactly as expected. But there must be quite a bit of cooking instructions missing for the filling. He followed the recipe to T but being an inexperienced baker he didn’t realize that without some type of cooking, all that liquid and flour would just end up in a soupy mess. I feel bad because he was so careful with the directions and his filling turned into a disaster. I also had to throw a lot of ingredients away because no matter what I tried, I could not rescue the mess. It was very wasteful.
    I love the column and the recipies. This is the first time I’ve been disappointed with any recipe.
    Thank you.

      Pass along my apologies to your son, Mrs. Martin, I am going to check with Gloria on those instructions and see what can be added to help someone else avoid the same problem.

        Is it the solid Crisco vs liquid Crisco oil?

        Yes, Christine, good question, solid Crisco.
