    Yum! Delicious! Mine were more oval shaped as I found it a little hard to cut them but lovely still. Might use more cranberries next time.

    Great recipe and easy to make. I had trouble cutting them and had to reshape prior to baking. I used half the White chocolate and drizzled it over the top. They look very festive!

    Just made these, still cooling so dipping still to go, but they taste great, thanks.
    Did nobody else find them impossible to "cut", due to the solids? I found it helpful to make the roll in my Thermomat and refigerate for about 1/2 hr, but they sure needed shaping after cutting !

    Made these today and they look and taste great! But just wondering if anyone has popped them in the freezer to keep? Mine are dipped in chocolate and not sure how that would defrost...Alternatively, how long would they keep in an airtight container? They're supposed to be for Xmas gifts and not for me to eat

    Submitted by lcps2211 on 15. December 2015 - 22:14.

    Very easy and delicious. The first time I made it it was really hard to cut because it was too soft - it was a hot day so it just squished and I had to reshape each biscuit. Second time I popped the log in the fridge to harden and it was so much easier to cut and they came out so much neater.
