    Kerfuffle-Upon-Wincle's Note:

    Recipe featured on The Daily Meal -- All Things Food and Drink ---------- In 1820, Missouri enacted legislation to tax bachelors between 21 and 50 years of age $1 per year for being unmarried. Bake these cookies that look like buttons -- or are they flowers? Either way, they’re easy, and cute enough to serve at a party.

      These cookies came together nicely and quickly. It is sort of like a sugar cookie with an extra little something in the middle. I will be making these again.

      These flavorful cookies were the bomb KUW. We enjoyed them very much. They looked very pretty on the cookie platters that I made for family and friends. The cookies were quick and easy to make with wonderful results. They tasted delicious and had a nice texture. I used triple berry jam, apricot jam, blackcurrant jam, green plum jelly and guava jelly. They all tasted great in this recipe. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will make again. made for Sweet December 2014.
