    I make these every year and they are quite the event! Takes many hours but they're always worth it. I add a touch of vanilla extract and also lemon zest, both of which I find enhance the flavor. I must always half the recipe because this year it nearly broke my kitchen aid mixer! The dough is pretty stiff and bulky. Next year I will remember to cut this recipe in half. I also sometimes substitute with half splenda and also use no sugar added jam and still get rave reviews!

    I made these cookies a few years ago. They came out exactly as the photos. I made my own sanding sugar. Just put regular sugar in the food processor and it comes out very fine sand sugar. It?

    Definitely don't jam them until after baking. These were fun!

    Does anyone know if you are supposed to make the jam sandwiches BEFORE or AFTER baking? It lists the directions after the baking instructions, but it seems more logical (to me) to do it before.

    My local bakery is nice enough to share their sanding sugars with me. Why not ask your bakery for some?

    these were reallly really good cookies! i accidentally forgot the eggs so i added them at the very end and they still tasted great. i put cream cheese icing on them and they tasted like yummy christmas cookies. like it says, this dough makes a lot of cookies, i made over 100 with it.

    These are excellent cookies! I made them with seedless Raspberry Jam. I ONLY use butter in my baking as 'butter makes it better'. If I see a recipe that uses Margarine I will not bake it. You can taste the difference butter makes in your baking. I have noticed quite a few C.C. recipes askiing for shortening..
