These cookies were delicious! I rolled the dough between sheets of parchment instead of flouring - I think this prevented the dough crumbling as others have seen. I didn't have a problem with the dough crumbling, I had a problem with it being too soft to hold its shape after cutting. To fix this, I refrigerated for at least 3 hours before rolling out for the first time. I rolled batches of dough (about 1/4 of the dough each time) between two sheets of parchment, then before cutting the circles, I put the rolled out dough (still in parchment) in the freezer for about 3 minutes. This stiffened up the dough enough for me to be able to pick up the pieces easily. I also heated and simmered the jam for until thickened which made it easier to spread on the delicate cookies. I got about 27 2.5" cookies. The cookies were delicious, and my dog agreed - he got to 2/3 of them before we could eat them! I'll definitely be making another batch! The night I made them, I thought they were a little TOO crisp, but after they sat overnight, the jam soaked into the cookies JUST a bit and they were perfect!!
