I made these mostly as directed with elderberry jelly, and my husband gave then five stars. Based on conflicting comments about the flour, I didn't sift it. The cookies were a tad try and cracked when I made the imprints, but they still tasted great. Next time I will sift to see if that prevents the cracking and makes a prettier cookie. I did not have problems with the cookies spreading too much or being greasy.
After reading the reviews that said that the recipe didn't make as many cookies as stated, I chose to make them smaller to get a higher yield. I scooped the dough out in level half tablespoons before rolling into balls and got 60 cookies. The cookies were bite-sized but could have been better with more jelly. Next time I will make them slightly bigger so that they hold more filling.
