    Luvfood's Note:

    I made these cookies very early on in my baking career for an elementary school project. My best friend back then helped by loaning me her Eiffel Tower and recipe, it was a very colourful card so vivid still in my mind. The project was a big hit and my class Loved the cookies i brought !! I thought of these a while ago and b/c of the wonderful internet was able to locate the recipe on-line, yahoo !!! I told my husband about this story long ago and recently he has tried these great little cookies, little different with the marmalade filling and very festive with the coloured icing.

      These are excellent cookies. I got this exact recipe out of my mom's copy of the 1963 Betty Crocker Cooky Book. I have made them several times for formal teas that I host at my house, and they are always well received.

      I made this recipe in middle school also for a project. I loved them. I use to make them each Christmas after that through high school. I finally made them again this Christmas and remembered how much I loved them. I had to make more for my sisters and their families. I takes time but they are worth it. I find it hard to find a 1 inch cutter so I use a 1 1/2 inch shot glass, so I don't get as many cookies(about 4 dozen.) I also, use different flavors of marmalade and jam, grape, apricot, orange, and strawberry.
