I just made a criss cross in the middle of the cookie instead of cutting any out, and they turned out perfect :) I got exactly 24, and I love the light almond flavor, I used raspberry spread, really good.
I used my pastry dough beaters which really mixed the dough up. Putting the dough in the refrig for 20 minutes helps it spread easier with the rolling pin. I use lemon curd instead of the jam or preserves. Excellent recipe.
