"I made this last year for my family and my friends while screening through all my seasonal TOH magazines I got, and I just randomly wrote down all the cookies from the mags, letting family and friends pick any cookie they liked. I was given eight different kinds to make, and this one was the best out of all! I used lingonberry preserves in place of raspberry jam, and the tartness of the preserves really balanced out the sweetness of the almond flavoring in the cookies. It was a bear to make at first because of the floury mess it left, but it was SO worth it! I recommend anybody who finds this recipe should try and make it, even those who aren't big on sandwich cookies."
