This recipe came from a school cafeteria. I made a few adjustments to improve recipe and scale down to home use. These are delicate and delicious. Enjoy!

These are great cookies! I rolled the dough out and cut into squares, then filled them with jam and sprinkled with icing sugar after they cooled .. yummy!!
