This is one of my family's favorie cookies. I make them for Christmas and this year, I put an easter spin on them. I have uploaded a picture. Instead of green, white, and red, I made yellow, green, and purple. A couple of recommendations: You do not need to seperate eggs as recipe suggests (add them all in together at once), add 3/4 tablespoon almond extract (the real stuff not imitation), you only need raspberry preserves, spray the pans with a little spray oil or use some butter then put the parchment paper in the pan (this keeps the paper from moving around when you are spreading the dough, and get a large quantity of almond paste online (you will make this recipe a lot and it is a lot cheaper www.nutsonline.com). This recipe goes together fairly quickly but after the cookies are baked, that is where all the extra time is needed. I will usually start these three days before I need them. One day for the baking and building the layers, one day for speading the chocolate and cutting them up, and one day for letting them rest and allow the jelly to moisten the cake. One the third day you are ready to eat. I use a half-sheet pan and double the recipe. These cookies do not last very long in my house.
