Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz
This is a recipe given to me by a friend quite some time ago.....if my memory serves me right, I believe that this recipe won a prize in a baking contest, although I can't be sure.....I have never tryed making these with other kinds of jam, although it would probably be great! also, they freeze good.
