Great tasting treat!Like most reviewers I also found the dough to be non-spreadable,next time I will chill it and just drop pieces of it onto the jam layer as a few others have said.I omitted the walnuts and added a tsp of vanilla to the dough.I'd also add extra jam next time I make it.These would be great with any flavour jam.1Reply
My recipe is exactly the same, but on a larger scale to make 2 jelly roll size pans. If you're having trouble spreading the dough on top, don't. Rather, press the first layer into your pans, cover with your jam and then drop little "balls" of dough all over the top. Don't shape the balls or anything fancy, just pinch off little chunks of dough and drop evenly all over. Gives the cookies a really nice, homey look. Also, my recipe uses only the yolks -- no white -- and that may make a difference in its "spreadability." I just make sure I'm making coconut macaroons on the same day!2Reply
This is a good recipe. It was simple and easy to make. Spraying my spatula with cooking spray did really help smooth out the batter. I got 24 squares out of this recipe and it was great for a dessert tray. More like bars rather than cookies, but yummy. Great way to use up all the cans of jam I made this summer. Thanks for posting.Reply
A great recipe! I had a class project where we had to discuss a foreign country and we got extra credit points if we brought in a food from the chosen country. Since I had been to the Czech Republic thats what I chose, and Strawberry Cookies would be the food. I made both Strawberry and Raspberry. Everybody loved the cookies. They were very easy to make, although spreading the batter was a SERIOUS irritation. But I discovered that greasing the spatula that I was using was extremely helpful. So for future reference for anyone considering making these...get a cooking spray and plan to use it liberally on the spatula...makes spreading the batter very easy!2Reply
Another recipe with a long over due review. These are lovely and so like I remember my mom making -plans are to have this freshly made along with her special Pink Lady Squares ready to go when we visit her this coming week. She has been hearing about Recipezaar and will tell her it's a Merlot winner. Thank you for another of your special recipes which have been so family winners at our house.1Reply
