Dainty Lily Cookies

Recipe by Donna M.

Decadent little morsels of fruit-filled pastry, these cookies are a bit tedious but worth it.

Made these for Christmas. I used good rasberry preserves. I chilled the dough before rolling as it was a little softer than I'm comfortable working with. These were just wonderful. Dissapeared fast. I'll be making them again. These are really like tiny empanadas. I'm tempted to try them filled with lightly sweetened yam and pineapple. Thanks for a great recipe. Dang they're good!
