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.

Nice recipe! I made this for gifts last Christmas, and was so pleased with them...I just searched through about 100 recipes just looking for THIS ONE!!! Strawberry, apricot, and mint jellies were my choices for color & presentation...tasty and very pretty! Thanks Karen!

I don't know what these are - cookies or tarts or whatever. They're delicious and so easy to make. Guess that's how the name came! I made two batches over 3 days - that's about 60 cookies each batch and it's all over!!! Thanks Karen! This one's a keeper!

These cookies are an old family recipe my Mom always made. The name comes from how simple & quick they are to make. She always made mountains of them for Christmas using strawberry jelly. She added a drizzle of icing (10X sugar mixed with a bit of vanilla) and then a sprinkle of chopped walnuts. With or without the extra topping and with ANY flavor of jam - these are GREAT!

Yes, these cookies are from a Pillsbury Bake-off cookbook. From the 50's. And yes, I have been baking them since then! Excellent! And easy. Janet

Had these tonight. I really enjoyed them, as did the kids and my husband... and the neighbor's kid... and my husband... ;-) Very lightly textured, and not too sweet for the jam and powdered sugar. I cooked these on parchment, so all I had to do was slide them onto the table and cut with a serrated knife while they were still very warm, so I didn't have a crumbling problem. My husband has decided they taste like a sweet scone. I filled mine with strawberry jam. Very tasty! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

My mom made these after finding the recipe in Pillsbury Family Desserts cookbook pamphlet. They are so good! She used 3 different jams - raspberry, mixed fruit, and cherry for the filling. A very nice treat for the dessert tray on Easter Sunday.

This recipe was very yummy! I used Solo cherry filling for the jelly. Next time I will make the depression almost as wide as the dough for a more filling to cookie ratio.
