May I make a suggestion? Try filling with SOLO brand fillings instead of jelly. They have poppyseed, lecvar, apricot, nut etc....The absolute best cookie my mom made for Christmas.
These weren't that great. I only made half the recipe and had to add more flour because it was too sticky. I also added more sugar to dough. I filled it with my homemade cherry jam which was the best part of the cookie. They do melt in your mouth - but I don't like that kind of texture in a cookie. Probably won't make again.
These cookies are great and remind me of my Grandma's recipe. If you're having trouble rolling out the dough, be sure to use it cold. If it is refrigerated before rolling out, it won't stick to the rolling pin and will be much easier to work with.
These cookies are melt in your mouth wonderful!I used seedless, black rasberry preserves for the filling and I sprinkled them with powdered sugar before serving. They are like a delicate pastry, without all the work! Yum!
Thank you Della, these were divine! I rolled them in red and green crystal sugar instead of icing sugar (which I find too messy), and they were very festive for Christmas. Make sure you seal them well before baking so the jam doesn't leak out. I found the dough quite easy to work with.
Wow, these are fantastic! I kinda got obsessed about trying to make sure the jelly didn't leak out during baking--at least at first. Then, I realized it didn't matter. If you almost immediately roll in sugar/cinnamon mixture--the mixture "spackles" the leak. These cookies just melt in your mouth. The make a great holiday cookie. I used blackberry and raspberry preserves. Yummy!
Everyone loved these. I recommend chilling the dough before rolling out and filling to avoid a sticky mess. I used blackberry jam to fill them, and they turned out absolutely delicious.
I love these cookies! they were simple to make, and everyone loved them.I filled them with raspberry and apricot filling that I picked up at my local bakery.
