Exactly like mom used to make when we were growing up. She lost her recipe and was estatic when I surprised her with these. Really easy and really terrific

I made these for christmas and everybody loved them. Instead of rolling the dough into balls and pressing them into the muffin tins, I rolled the dough out and used a flower shaped cookie cutter. they looked very nice. I also had to make a triple batch of the filling. I think because my crust was a bit thinnier because of rolling it out. I had well over 80 cookies.
