These are really delicious. I've had numerous people ask for the recipe and even had a request for cookies from someone in the hospital to help brighten their spirits.

I followed the recipe exactly and it is awesome! My husband said they are his favorite cookie and that says something. :

Wonderful easy recipe. I substituted raspberry preserves for the strawberry. I made the bars for a graduation party and received many compliments.

This is a beautiful addition to put on a tray of cookies for the Christmas holidays, but excellent to eat anytime! I made it with seedless raspberry jam (in addition to having used the strawberry at other times) and it was really good, tasting similar to Linzer Cookies. It's one that my daughter asks for every Christmas now.
