    twissis's Note:

    Approx 4 yrs ago when my grandson was born, my brother insisted I join a website called The site recently announced the winner of its "Delicious Desserts Recipe Contest" & Donna B's *Ribbon Cookies* recipe won the judges favor. To quote the site intro: "These stunning little revelations outdid our expectations. When you put that 1st one in your mouth, the light, lemony cookie & the gooey raspberry preserves create a symphony of flavor." (24 servings assumes 3 cookies per serving) *Enjoy* !

      These cookies are amazing! My mom decided to try the recipe and gave me a plate of them when I came to visit. I couldn't stop eating them! The cookie itself is so light and delicious and the raspberry preserves are the perfect compliment! I immediately got on my laptop to get the recipe and bake some myself. I am going to try almond extract as a variation too!
