OH MY GOD!!! I made these as part of a friends wedding buffet, and they were SCARFED DOWN!!! Also, I included them in my holiday cookie tray for work, and they were the first ones gone. Great easy recipe--reminds me of my Hungarian grandmothers Linzer cookies! :-) A MUST TRY!!!!


Everyone loved these. The second baking took a little longer than the recipe indicates. I've also tried this using raspberry preserves. Great easy recipe.


These are great!!! I did change the recipe a bit though. I did half with the apricot preserves and half with strwberry preserves, Iwas curious to see how it came out with something other then apricot preserves. Well both rocked, I liked the strawberry better and hubby preferred the apricot. Win, win! Can't wait to try with cherry or raspberry preserves! I also put an oatmeal, brown sugar crumb topping instead of the nuts on top. I will cook the crust longer next time. WARNING!!!! If you arn't a fan of very sweet foods than this is not the recipe for you.
