    less2saw's Note:

    My mom made these excellent buttery rich cookies. They are a soft cookie that melts in your mouth. They are excellent with any kind of jam but chokecherry or raspberry jelly are my favorites. I don't know how many this makes as I always double the recipe and they get eaten so fast I've never had time to count. Refrigerate the dough for three hours minimum, or make in batches days apart.

      Tasty cookie for sure! Instead of making a sort of sandwich, I baked for 5 min, used my index finger to indent each cookie then added strawberry jam in the idention. Returned to the over for 5 more min. I also added chopped pecans when making the dough. Thanks!!!

      This recipe makes for a great soft buttery type cookie that is sure to please most people. There are so many varieties of jams/jelly's that you could add to this recipe depending on preference/taste. I used both strawberry and raspberry jam/preserves. The strawberry was home-made and so it was a bit more runny than the raspberry which was Smuckers. thanks for a great recipe and cookie that's oh-so-good. Made for Breast Cancer Awareness Month-October's "ThinkPink" tag game~
