I love these cookies! These are so easy to make and they are delicious. I used cherry preserves instead of raspberry jam, and I did not use the vanilla baking chips. I'm sure these would work with any flavor jam or preserves. I will most definately add this recipe to my cookie list. Thanks so much for posting it!!

This recipe wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. When I mixed the dough all up, it was dry and I had a hard time getting the dough to stick together in a ball. The finished cookie is delicious. I didn't drizzle any white chocolate because I like the way it looks without it. Thanks for posting!!!!
