    KLHquilts's Note:

    These make wonderful Christmas cookies. They're very small, so they're a delightful treat for dessert -- maybe half the size of a regular cookie. Great combination of flavors!

      Mix flour, nuts, and spices. Pour the butter/egg mixture into the dry ingredients. Mix with a fork or hands as for a piecrust. Dough will be soft. Place in a bowl cover, and refrigerate for an hour.
    4. 4
      Take half-teaspoonfuls of dough and roll into balls. Place 1" apart on ungreased cookie sheet (cookies should not spread much). With your pinkie finger, make a small indentation in the center of each cookie - don't punch through to the cookie shet. Fill the indentation with a dab of raspberry (or cherry, or strawberry) jam.
    5. 5
      Bake for 12 minutes. Loosen cookies from the sheet when they're first out of the oven, but leave on the sheets until they're cool.
