I found these in my collection, untried. Today Damian 10, and Kathryn 8,helped me make them. They were that easy! They are from "Taste of Home Cookies, 2011, Catherine Cassidy, ED. I couldn't believe how easy, yet nice enough for any occasion, they are to make.

How To Make sacher cookies

  • Our Viking Kathryn testing the Sacher cookies. She said Yum!

    Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.( I used Silpat silacon sheets). Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make a straight down indentation in the center in the center of each ball, but not all the way down.
  • So easy, and different than the everyday cookie.
    Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes or until set. There will be no real color change. Cool 2 minutes before removing to wire racks. Handle gently. Pill indentations with preserves.
