These are a traditional Scottish cookie-very spicy and not too sweet. They are a treat for the grown-ups, too. Wonderful with a nice mug of tea. Yum!

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl or bowl of a stand mixer, cream together 1/2 cup of butter and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one a time, mixing well after each one. Combine the flour, baking powder, allspice and cinnamon; stir into the batter until blended. The dough will be very stiff.
  3. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to 1/8 to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into circles using a juice glass or cookie cutter. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges start to brown lightly. Cool cookies on wire racks for at least 15 minutes.
  5. While cookies cool, make the frosting. Beat the butter and salt together until soft, then gradually mix in the confectioners' sugar and vanilla until smooth and light.
  6. Spread strawberry jam onto one side of a cookie, then top with another cookie to make a jam sandwich. Spread frosting on top, and place a maraschino cherry half in the center before the frosting sets. Repeat with the remaining cookies.

a lovely recipe, simple and just sweet enough what a pity they are neither scottish (Tipperary is in Ireland... conveniently in County Tipperary just like the VERY well known song) nor traditional for Tipperary as i don't know anywhere in either country known for its cherries. still a very nice sweet treat though

This was very good. I was going through one of my "sweet tooth" cravings and made these, although I didn't have cherries or jam, they still tasted really good. And my kids were begging for more!

These went over really well, much better than I expected! Used Quince jelly in some, which tastes like honey, these were especially delicious.
