These are quite easy to make. The only change I made was to use more chopped pecans (I found myself running out after rolling about 2/3 of the cookies.) I used raspberry preserves, which seemed to me to provide the best combination of flavours. They taste great and look wonderful as well.
While these cookies do look and taste great I was quite disapointed that I only got 14 cookies out of the recipe. It was also a very dry dough which had to be pressed into the palm to form rather than roll, when rolled they fell apart; after baking when trying to put the thumbprint in, some cracked. Wonderful taste but I would not make them again, not enough results for all the effort put into making them. Again, I want to emphasize they look and taste wonderful.
