I followed the recipe exactly except I added a tbsp of Vanilla extract to the mixture. These were delicious and soft! I used plum butter, and raspberry jam then sprinkled with white sugar on top. These take some time to make, and the dough does not need to be refrigerated. Will definitely make them again when I have about 1.5-2 hours to spare! :)

maybe I did something wrong but these were tasteless, dry and hard, even though I pulled them as soon as they were getting brown around the edges. The other problem I had was the dough was way to soft to roll out. Maybe the dough should be refrigerated a little while before rolling out? or, again, maybe it was just me...

I used blackberry jam because that's what I had available. The boys really liked these cookies, and they weren't hard to make. They look neat too. They do take some time though.

I used cut and bake sugar cookie mix with this but they spread out too much! But the taste was Yummy!

I made this recipe with homemade plum preserves and they came out okay. They were pretty, but the cookie was a little dry and crumbly. I think next time I will use a different sugar cookie recipe.
