I love it when I find a recipe that reminds me of childhood or at least an early memory, this is that rcipe. My Mum made a cookie very much like this but there was one difference instead of jam the cookied was spread with melted chocolate. I have made three different batches one with jam one with my childhood memory of chcolate and then I just went compleatly crazy and spread with chocolate and jam. The last combination was a little messy but worth the effort. I will make these again and a again, all varities. A real keeper.
I found it easier to roll the dough between two pieces of waxed paper, and then place in the freezer for a few minutes to firm it up before spreading on the jam. I skipped the nuts on the outside. After rolling, I placed in the freezer again for a few hours, thus saving a lot of time. I got 45 cookies out of roll, and my kids really liked them.
These were incredibly fun and delicious--I substituted margarine for Crisco and used a triple berry jam. A great hit!!
