    Simply Chris's Note:

    This recipe came from a little pamphlet with cookie recipes that a neighbor gave to me when I was about 12. My family always has this at Christmas, along with the Russian Tea Cookies and Frittula. It's an old recipe calling for shortening, and that's the way we still make it. The recipe calls for making your own apricot filling, but when time is short you can substitute prepared apricot preserves.

      Thanks for the recipe! I was looking for something comparable to the cookies I got at a Northeastern Iowa bakery as a kid. I made these into half circles, by just folding the dough over. I compromised on the filling, adding soaked apricots to apricot jam and blending it in the blender. The dough is a little difficult to work with--it tears easily, but I think it's worth the patience. The cookie is very light and a little crumbly. It's very good.
