    The cake part came out okay but the filling was terrible. Had to add lots of marshmellow creme to make enough filling for the whole batch.

    Wow these were amazing! I made the cookies much smaller than suggested, and cooked them for 5-7 minutes. I think next time I'll make just the cookie and serve it with fresh strawberries and whipped cream! The cookies were soft and stuck to containers, so I stored them placed on parchment paper.

    when i made them, they seemed very dry- i made them exactly to the instructions, but even with the applesauce, they practically crumbled :( also, the frosting was way too buttery- i know its a butter cream, but i ended up throwing in some more confectioner's sugar to even it out a little. i was pretty disappointed.

    Very easy to make and everyone loved them! If the pies aren't fluffy enough, mix the batter some more to make it smoother.

    Instead of coloured suger for decoration add food colouring. For christmas divide the filling in half making 1/2 green and the other 1/2 red.

    I made these egg free with Enery-G foods egg replacer and they were delicious!!! Just add the powder without the water to the recipe when eggs are called for. It's now a requested staple in my family.

    Question: I have a huge jar of applesauce but it is sweetened, so can I still use that if I reduce the amount of sugar in the recipe? Anyone?

    These are great! I made them and took them to the fire station. They were gone in the blink of an eye.
