    Bit fiddly to put jam in, I just make them bigger the next time. Taste great!  -  17 Jul 2013


    sooo good! especially when you first take them out of the oven, they're just like air. I added 1/2 Teaspoon of vanilla extract. To keep the jam from spreading all over the cookie, just make small thumbprints! I am only 12 so i may not be that much help...but my whole family loved them and asked me to make more!  -  25 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    INCREDIBLE! This is my kind of cookie...I made them for a cookie swap, but decided not to take them...they were too yummy! I tried 3 different kinds of jam: rasp., boysenberry and blueberry. Raspberry won hands down around here. The dough is very sticky, so I refridgerated it for a while to make it easier to work with. I used a small 1" stainless steel scoop to make the cookies, and then the back of a round stainless 1/4 teaspoon to make the prints. I dipped the jam with the same 1/4 t. so it fit perfectly into the holes. I only got 3-3 1/2 dz cookies from this recipe as opposed to the 72 servings listed. Bake until JUST starting to lightly brown around the edges. These cookies spread out to 2" while baking, but the final product was delicate and buttery with a sweet and tart rasperry center. FAB!  -  17 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
