"I didn't even get to try these, honestly! They were devoured! Didn't have butter, so I used margarine, and had trouble getting the dough to stop crumbling."

"Yum, yum and YUM! These were easy to make and turned out great. Next time I will try other jam flavors too. The dough is super yummy - I think it would be great just to mix in nuts or chopped cranberries and skip the jam part. Could be very versatile!"
