I have a batch of these baking now, my third batch this holiday season!... my husband is going nuts! They smell simply out of this world. I followed the directions to a "T" and they turned out nearly perfect, although I have struggled with the cookies spreading as they bake. I quickly re-shaped and re-formed my well for the jam while they were still hot and before the jam went on. I salvaged them nicely that way. The second and third time, I refrigerated the shaped logs for 15 minutes before baking them. Like Sugar Cookies, these can lose their shape and flatten out if the butter is not chilled again. Otherwise, they are perfect every time.. so easy to put together. Thanks you for sharing, Patsy! They are now an intricate part of my cookie platters during the holidays! BTW, for those who are having trouble with the cookies breaking, its because you are making your well TOO DEEP. I keep my cookies exactly 2 inches wide and only make my well about half as deep as the thickness of the cookie. YUMMO!
