These are OK, but the cooking time or temp or something is off. The outsides cooked but the insides stayed mushy. It is tricky to time it right so that it does not burn and you can still cut them into squares. They did not set up into cookie form very well for me.



Umm...healthy? Nothing healthy in this recipe...



These cookies were enjoyed by the adults, but not too much by the children! I used peach preserves as no suggestions were made for the type of jelly. The cookies were very moist and delicious, especially when warm.
