These cookies are the best and so easy. I’ve used all kinds of fillings based off my favorite cheesecakes: Nutella, pumpkin, other jams but my favorite is frozen blueberries. Just squish a few on top for an even easier version, no need for all the hole making.

These are great cookies and one if my son's favorites. If I didn't make them every Christmas, I would be in trouble!

These are a family favorite. I make them throughout the year and switch fillings. Plum jam, apricot jam, tart cherry and even fig. All delicious and they freeze and ship well.

One of my top 3 favorite cookies ever both in taste and ease of prep. Put the jelly in a plastic bag snip if the corner and pipe in...makes it so much easier!!

I ran across this recipe and decided to give it a try. That was two years ago. Everyone loves them and requests the recipe. I have even changed up the type of jelly.
