Note to future reviewers. It's key that you use reduced fat p.b. or else cut back on the amount of shortening used:-( A huge mistake on my part as these cookies were very greasy to work with. The overall taste was great and they baked up somewhat nicely. But..I do feel the amount of oil in this cookie dough was waaayyy too much. I did up the flour by another 1/3 cup but felt that continuing until I got the right consistency would have required incorporating more of the other ingredients. I used both blueberry and strawberry home-made preserves as my filling. Made for TYM Tag~
