I made these for Christmas and used a blueberry, raspberry, pomegranate spread I found at Costco. It was quite good.

Love these cookies! Made the batter and refrigerated. Got side tracked and never got around to baking them til several days later . . not a problem they were great! Needless to say this turned out to be a great recipe to make ahead. Next time I would let them stand outside of fridge for about 1/2 hour as when they stay in the fridge as long as they did, the batter was pretty hard. Wonderful taste & wonderful presentation!
