not very good! They did not have much flavor. I was making these for my daughter's teacher the day before her classs party. Had to make something else last minute. Threw the cookies away!
I made this recipe last year. They came out great! I found that it was easier to remove the cookies from the foil if you lightly sprayed the pan with cooking spray. To make sure the candy doesn't over power the cookie be careful on the candy you choose to use for the center. Tropical fruit candy isn't the best to use. Try a more traditional or orginal flavor of life saver's to use. They will come out perfect. Hope you enjoy them!
The flavor of the Lifesavers overpowers the cookie. I too had a problem with the candy center weeping and making a mess. The cookies are pretty, but I prefer a cookie that tastes good too.
This recipe really takes me back to being a kid! The recipe takes a while but is well worth it. In fact I have had requests to make this for others. There are some shortcuts that can be used but leave the candy the same. Life Savers melt well (except orange flavor), unlike other clear candies.
I really liked this recipe. It did take a long time but they where great. One I did was christmans trees and took a pin apart to make holes in it like ornaments and filled it with diffrent color candy and then out lined it with green icing. And I was a little hesitant about the honey I don't care for the taste but after I baked them I loved it and they are so fluffy. My kids also give it a thumbs up they LOVED the candy.
I am so upset - I made this recipe for a cookie exchange that I am hosting tonight. The cookies took a lot of time to make but looked really nice when my daughter and I were finished. I just took them out of the tins that I stored them in, and they are a mess! The candy part melted all over the other cookies and made all the cookies stick together! What a gooey mess! Now these people are coming to my house, and I have no cookies. I never dreamed that this would happen after storing them, in the garage, and following the recipe exactly as it stated. I have no idea what went wrong. Needless to say, I do not recommend this recipe and am really embarassed that all of these people are coming to my house and I have NO cookies to offer!
These are excellent. I didn't set in the fridge for 2 hours because of time limits, instead I just rolled out immediately.
It was quite painstaking to make this recipe. I was up late crushing lifesavers. The cookies tasted alright, but nothing spectacular. I picked this recipe because it looked good, but it didn't come out like I expected.
I made these with crushed candy canes. They made such pretty cookies. I will make these again and again to give as gifts! I just make up the dough at night and then refrigerate, then in the morning I bake away! Make sure you bake on foil and let them cool completely before moving.
Only for those who have alot of time to spend on baking. Really hard to keep the cookie from sticking
