READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by internetnut

I have not tried this recipe. I got this recipe from Holidays Of The World Cookbook For Students. This is a American recipe. I plan to use Splenda for baking in place of the sugar and sugar free jam or jelly.

These cookies were a great surprise. I wasn't sure what to expect with the short list of ingredients, but they turned out very well. I made half of them with strawberry preserves and the other half apricot. The only issue was the baking time. At 18 minutes mine were starting to burn on the bottoms so I took them out. All in all though, a very easy everyday recipe that I will definately make again. Thanks for sharing internetnut! Made for Bargain Basement tag game.
