DELICIOUS! These are really good. They look like they take all day to make but are really easy. I used apricot preserves as it was all I had. I would definetely try again with peach preserves. The only suggestion I can think of is to add a little more preserves to the recipe. I think I put mine in the freezer to chill faster. These were great!

These are WONDERFUL! I first tasted these at a Pennsylvania wedding, where home-made cookies still rival any wedding cake. I coaxed the recipe form the baker and was ready to type it into Zaar - but RecipeNut has saved me the trouble. Thanks so much for posting these.
