"Originally in Taste of Home". These cookies are very delicious. They are great with a cup of tea. I hope you will try and enjoy them as we do.

Fantastic cookie! I made it with raspberry preserves instead of jam. (not sure if it makes a difference) To keep your cookies from going flat when baking, make your balls with the indentations then chill for about 15 minutes before filling with jam and baking. I didnt use the glaze but melted white chocolate and drizzled over cookies. I got 40 cookies that didn't last long!
