    Luv2baker's Note:

    I got this recipe from The Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Cookies Magazine. They are delightful. You can use any type of jam, I use raspberry or strawberry. To store, put cookies between wax paper in an airtight container, cover. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze 3 months.
