I've made these several times. I turn them into peanut butter and jelly cookies by subbing half of the butter for peanut butter and I use blackberry or boysenberry jelly. They are the best!

What a great cookie, and so easy. I flattened them with a glass dipped in sugar then made the smaller indentation for the jelly in the center.When they were cooled and sprinkled with powdered sugar they looked and tasted just like a bakery cookie, if not better.

My daughter made these for a Christmas Party and they disappeared in minutes. What we did was fill them with other preserves also ; guava is excellent. So easy to make and they have that expensive bakery look and taste. Thank you!!
