A wonderful treat! They were so simple to make but look and are delicious! I found it easy to just pipe the raspberry jam into the indentation with a little plastic bag. They would be great to serve for company with different jams in them! I like them also because they weren't very sweet, they took more of the sweetness from the jam itself than the cookie. Thank you Wildflour for posting your Grandma's recipe!

These are exquisite little cookies - and they are perfect for Christmas. My grandson took one bite and said I had to give them the recipe. They are buttery and just melt in your mouth. I used seedless raspberry jam - my favorite. These are really special.

I have yet to make anything from this website that I haven't found amazing! I made the recipe just as is only made the cookies larger, so I had to up the cooking time to about 20 minutes. These were delicious, thanks!

So delicious! I made these today, got about 29 cookies out of the dough and filled half with strawberry jam and the other half with blackberry. I offered some to my neighbors and their children to try and I ended up refilling the plate 3 times! I was told by one neighbor, "I'll watch your son, go get more cookies!" There is now 1 left. I'll be making these again tomorrow! Thank you for a wonderful keeper!

So easy, pretty and most importantly delicious! I had no problem using a spoon to deliver my jam (homemade strawberry/blackberry). Yum!

These cookies are SO easy and such a hit with everyone. I always have to make extra because whenever someone tastes them, they want a few to take home. The powdered sugar adds the right sweetness. I like to make a variety of jams so i use strawberry, blackberry and raspberry. Thanks for the recipe, its great!

These are wonderful and super easy to make! I used peach perserves and they were yummy! I even did some plain and just topped with the powdered sugar! I whipped these up after school and we had them after supper! I will definitely make again!! Thanks!

Made these as part of my Christmas goodie bags for friends and co-workers. They are so good. Light and buttery. I used seedless blackberry Simply Fruit for the jam. They turned out great. Will definitely make these again.

I made these cookies to go into tins to give to my neighbors, friends and co-workers. Of course I sampled one...OK 3, and they were awesome! I used raspberry jam and dates and nut mixture in the middle. The compliments will be flying on these!
