    Mary Scheffert's Note:

    I have not made these--I posted this recipe as an answer to a recipe request. They sound awfully good ... I think they're going to be a new addition to this year's Christmas cookie list!

      Good, nutty predominant taste, next time I'll add a little salt. they tasted better a few hours later than they did right out of the oven. Dough is sticky - keep it cool and roll it on a floured pastry cloth rather than a Tupperware or similar plastic surface or you won't be able to roll the cut circles. For a 4" cutter I cut a deli container 1.5" from the bottom - the cut edge was exactly 4" diameter and worked fine. spread the filling only to within 1/2" of edges or else you can't pinch the ends of the roll closed.
