    @Kree6528 would you be related to a Kate Barker of Elmira by any chance? My husband's great grandmother received a similar recipe years ago but part of it was illegible so I've been searching the internet and came across this one, which has got me very excited!

    The dough was way too wet. Wasted half of it trying to roll it out. Much more flour needed!

    Great cookies!! I added a little bit of vanilla to the dough recipe. Made a double batch but needed to add more flour. No problem, it worked out fine. When I put the filling on the dough, I pressed it down a little with flour on my fingertips. This kept the top dough from splitting. I did one extra thing...I made a thin glaze of confectioners sugar and water, and brushed it over the tops of each cookie with a pastry brush. Let them harden before packing. I froze them and pull a few out every few days to enjoy! PERFECT! And just like I remembered as a child! Thanks Kree!!
