What a great, traditional cookie recipe! I made this for a couple of friends today to get them into the holiday mood and they really enjoyed these classic cookies! :)
I made half the recipe which gave me 17 big cookies that spread out quite a bit during baking.
For the jam I used wild blueberry and in half of the cookies strawberry-guave. Both were received well and looked very pretty.
Your directions were easy to follow and the baking time spot on. I think Ill add this simple yet elegant and tasty recipe to my cookie routine. It surely is a winner!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful recipe with us, Crafty Lady!
