I really liked these cookies. As MuffinGoddes said, they are really sweet, but really sweet can be a really good thing every now and then. They were simple to make and cooked up fine. I only had vanilla frosting so that is what I used. Amy, thanks so much, they are as sweet as you!!
I loved these! I must add this disclaimer: if you don't like extremely sweet desserts, this recipe will probably not appeal to you. That being said, I loved these because they reminded me of the awesome giant frosted sugar cookies that I get once in a while at the local Market Basket bakery. They're tooth-achingly sweet, but I adore them. If you are a frosting lover like me, you will really like these. The jam cuts the sweetness of the cookie base and the frosting just a bit, so it's a nice touch. I made these with blueberry jam this time, so I'll have to try the raspberry next time (the blueberry jam was pretty good, though). This was so easy and quick to make, too. This may not be for everyone, but I highly recommend it to any frosting lover! Thanks for posting! :)
