My husband chose this recipe for me to make for his birthday and I was skeptical at first because I am not that good at working with shortbread type recipes. But with a little help from some reviews of those who have tried before me., I was very impressed with how they came out! Very tasty, delicate, and pretty! I highly recommend refrigerating the dough for 20 minutes before forming into balls. That does seem to help with the handling and keeping them from cracking while baking. Also, dont over-fill the holes with preserves. I had a Nivea chapstick thing (long) that I used to make the holes and it did a great job because I had more leverage to twist the hole with. Turned out nice and round and deep enough to hold a good amount of jam. But you really have to treat these cookies with a gentle touch once out of the oven. Dont man-handle them especially while they are still warm or they will break on you. I definitely recommend them! They were pretty easy too!
