Tasty and pretty easy. The quality of the jam used makes a huge difference!
ETA: Dough was too crumbly the second time I made this (not sure why, but I might not have measured carefully) so I made thumbprints instead. Still good and even easier, but I had quite a bit of the filling left (which is going to be used as a delicious pancake topping!).
Followed the recipie exactly and it's just a crumbly mess. Will find something to do with it though. Just can't roll it out.
Just made these and they are certainly tasty. I did everything very carefully but could not come up with nice spirals like in the photo (the edges cracked and the jam was seeping out of the sides). The dough was a bit crumbly for me overall...but it really was more of a cosmetic issue. I don't care for coconut flakes so I omitted those...and I did try a few with apricot jam which was nice as well - but raspberry was the best. Chocolate might be a fun filling for these as well. I topped with a bit of powdered sugar to pretty them up a bit for a party which I thought was a nice touch.
I LOVE these cookies! I always look forward to my sister-in-law making them every year for Christmas.
I followed this recipe to the T. The dough came out great and easy to work with. I baked them for 11 minutes and they still are too soft. Can't figure out what happened.
ok, i followed the recipe exactly and ended up with a hard ball of crumbly dough. there was no way it was going to "roll out". so i tried again with another sugar cookie recipe. that worked and tasted pretty good. also, when they got out of the oven i sprinkled some sugar on top, which made them better. all in all, it was more work than it was worth in my opinion.
These by far were my favorite cookie out of all I made. The only thing I changed in the recipe was to use pecans as that is what I had on hand. The dough can be tricky and a little messy (refrigerate and work quickly) but competely worth it in the end.
Made these for Christmas last year. I really liked them. They were pretty sticky and tricky to roll, but came out yummy!
We made these cookies a week ago. They didn't look anything like the picture, but they were very good! Maybe they looked different because we cut them thicker and I think the oven was too hot. We didn't add the walnut, and we used three different jams to make three different kinds of cookies. All in all great recipe!
Yummy! I omitted the coconut and walnuts from the filling as my husband doesn't like them. Just used plain Raspberry jam, and they turned out nicely! Even after greasing the pan though several of the cookies were difficult to remove from the sheet after baking, so not all of mine turned out pretty in the end! But overall we enjoyed these cookies. Made them for Valentines day '09!
