These are fabulous cookies that I have been making for years. I had originally found the recipe in a Yankee magazine. I often will separate the dough into 4 parts and flavor them different and use different jams and fillings to get a variety and then dust them with powdered sugar. My recipes uses less salt (1/4 tsp). These are really good though and very easy to make, as well as impressive and delicious.
