      I made these for holiday gifts, and I'd better put them away soon before I eat them all. They are delicate and melt-in-your mouth buttery. I use homemade peach jam, and followed the advice of some other reviewers and chilled the cookies after forming them and before baking so that they wouldn't spread too much. They spread a little but held together and the jam didn't leak out. It also takes only a tiny bit of jam for each cookie, like 1/4 tsp. It didn't seem like enough to me, but I'm glad I didn't try to cram in more, because it melts and more probably would have run over. I look forward to making these again with different flavors of jam.

      Divine. I had no idea butter, sugar, and flour could taste this good. This recipe is simple and superb. I divided the dough into two balls and refrigerated it overnight, then grated one ball on the bottom of a cake pan, spread a jar of good-quality orange curd, and then grated the second ball of dough on the top and baked the whole thing as a tart, rather than cookies. This was wildly successful and delicious.
