      Made these with green lemon curd for St. Patty's Day. Very easy to make and pretty too. I'm going to make them again tonight for my investment club, this time with a variety of home made jams. I will definitely keep this in my recipe file.

      Came out similar to a shortbread cookie, but a bit crumbly. I may add an extra yolk next time for some more moisture/binding since I couldn't press to deep into the cookie (I like a lot of jam). I added some Chambord to a Black Raspberry All Fruit Jam. Still yummy.

      These are awesome, but don't eat them straight from the oven. The jam tends to be a bit on the hot side. Just ask redmeatgirl. She'll tell you how hot they get.
