    I obtained this recipe from my mother so I'm not really sure where it originated. It has been a holiday tradition to make these cookies each year.

      I found this recipe while searching for a recipe that used mint jelly and we love it! These cookies are easy to make and taste yummy. I used a cookie scoop instead of making balls and I got the same number of cookies. Also, I used crabapple jelly instead of raspberry jam. I think any red jam or jelly would work fine.

      Simple & delicious! I used cherry jam for the filling and the cookies turned out perfect.
