    Dreamer in Ontario's Note:

    From Oetker Baking is Fun. Use other jams than red currant if you wish. The number of cookies you end up with will depend on how thick or thin the dough is rolled out. In Switzerland these cookies would be called Spitzbuben

      Made these little tasties pretty much as given in the recipe, & didn't roll them terriibly thin! Shared about 2/3 of the batch with a weekly group my other half attends, & they were so well received (let's make that totally devoured!) that I've been asked to make them for yet another meeting! I thought they were great, too, but then I added a Hersey's chocolate kiss to the middle of each before eating 'em! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed as a THANK YOU for playing with us in Please Review My Recipe during the recent tour]
