"A really beautiful and tasty cookie. I just had to be careful moving after they were cut as they wanted to break in half."

"I've made these cookies to give in gift boxes every Christmas for the last 5 years. They are so quick, easy, beautiful and delicious! Recently I found myself with only whole wheat flour on hand. Fearing the cookies would be too dry, I melted the butter instead of just softening it, and after adding the filling, baked for 10 minutes instead of my customary 12. The cookies turned out great. I've used a variety of fillings too - cherry, loganberry, strawberry, etc. It's great to have such a reliable recipe to pull out when you need a special treat."
