    This is an interesting dessert. I am not sure if you'd call them cookies, cakes or bars but they would be lovely with tea or coffee. They are delicious jam filled sweet treats. I found these in an old cook book and am not sure where the name comes in :)

      These are very delicious cookies, and they're really fast and easy to make! I like to substitute different jams once in a while too. I usually add 1/2 tsp. of salt as well. Anyone looking for a great addition to their holiday goody trays should try this easy one! Thanks for posting, Karen!

      Maybe one of the prettiest, easiest, cheapest, as made with things you just have around cookies there is. I filled half with strawberry jam and half with blueberry. I know this recipe from one of those Pillsbury Bakeoff cookie booklets from the grocery store line. A real winner. Looks ike you bought them at a fancy bakery for almost no effort. I did them on parchement and they are easier to cool, fill and cut that way.
