These are a great crispy cookie treat and can be changed with different nuts and jams and dipped in chocolate or other colors depending on the holiday. I used cherry jam and chopped walnuts on this recipe. Wilton candy melts can be found in craft and specialty stores. I didn't add cooling time to preparation time. —Johnna Johnson, Scottsdale, Arizona
