"I made these during Christmas and they tasted sooooo good. Very soft and tender butter flavored cookie with the delicious raspberry jam in the center. The glaze just put our lights out. Beautiful and scrumptious. Thank-you."
"These were really good, but the glaze made them too sweet and it kind of covered up the excellent taste of the jam and the cookie. We thought the cookies would have been better without the glaze but, alas, I had already glazed them all before I realized. Would probably make again without the glaze. Also, I halved the glaze and it was plenty."
"Fabulous presentation! I just found the cookies to be a littler harder & crunchier than the soft, tender shortbread I'm used to."
"I just made a batch of these cookies to take to my Bunco group's Christmas party tonight. YUM! They are delicious. I rolled my dough balls in granulated sugar and because I have a hard time finding seedless raspberry jam, I used Smucker's strawberry jam. Then I lightly sprinkled the cookies with more sugar before baking. No need for the glaze. The sweetness is just right! Great cookie to have with a cup of coffee. Beware they are addictive."
"I made these as part of the cookie table at my daughter's wedding. Wonderful taste and a lovely presentation."
"I recently bought a box of Knott's Berry Farm Strawberry Shortbread cookies and fell in love with them. I decided to try and make some so I found this recipe. They turned out GREAT! They are like popcorn, I can't stop eating them. I made them with an off brand strawberry jam because that's all I had, but next time I'm going to buy some Knott's berry farm jam and see if I like it better. But this is a great recipe."
"My husband and I loved these coookies! Simply delicious. I couldn't find my almond extract, so I used lemon essence and vanilla extract - 1/4 t. each. You need to make these cookies. Somebody said that 1 batch is not enough, I have to agree. Thanks ratherbeswimmin'!"
"Great recipe, I made one batch with raspberry jam, and another with a peach amaretto jam I made a couple months ago. They were both to die for and didn't last long! Thanks!"
"Super recipe...So yummy and so easy! I sprinkled a little kosher salt into the batter before baking because I like a little kick of salt in my cookies. I used strawberry jam (with seeds) and didn't use any glaze. The cookies are delicious. Thanks!!"
"The recipe is very easy to make. 1 batch is definitely not enough. I made 3 batches in the end as it taste real good. I roll the ball into 1.5cm in diameter so that the cookies will be in bitesize. There is no need for glaze. Will definitely bake again with this recipe. You may replace the jam with any other flavour. Couldn't find raspberry jam. I replaced them with strawberry jam instead. :)"
"A very good shortbread cookie..with the added sweetness of the jam. They taste great and look very pretty in the cookie jar and on the serving plate. Will definitely be making again and again."
"I made these for Valentine's day and they came out delicious! I wanted them to be like the Knott's Berry Farm shortbread cookies and they were! Thanks for the recipe, I will DEFINITELY be making these again!"
"Fantastic! These cookies melt in your mouth and were a big hit for Christmas this year! I followed the recipe exactly and they came out perfect! Thanks!"
"Outstanding! I made these for my Christmas cookie tray, but there is no way they'll last that long! I added a half-cup of ground pecans and like the previous reviewer, opted not to ice them. Thanks for a fabulous recipe!"
"These are the best. I made a round ball and then flattened it just a bit with a glass dipped in sugar. This made them more uniform. I baked them exactly 18 minutes at 350. I didn't drizzle anything on them as I didn't think they needed it. These really do melt in your mouth. Happy Baking!"
"Delectable! Made this first w/ Peach jam then tried raspberry jam w/ lemon extract, and cherry jam w/ almond. All were extremely yummy and were gone super fast."
"best cookies I've ever made! I made them for Christmas and New Years and all of my co-workers are already begging for more. Made exactly as recipe says."
"These are now my favorite cookies!!! I cannot believe I made them they were so good. Make sure you save some jam for when they come out of the oven because after baking they need more filling. WONDERFUL!!!"
"I made these Christmas Eve and now have to make a second batch as the first one is gone. I didn't make the glaze as I find them sweet enough. DS said these are his new favourite cookie. I will be making these for years to come."
