  • Okay, I REALLY need some help with this recipe. What is the filling? Do we need another recipe or am I missing it within this recipe? I haven’t made filled cookies before so not sure if I am missing something.

The filling is usually a small amount of Jam. My family also uses this recipe for cut out Christmas cookies.

We use to make these special cookies, gramma made homemade jams, and jellies, so we used to fill them with those, always cutting a tiny hole in the covering cookie, she used a thimble to cut the holes with. I never had one when I made them, so I used a straw to put two tiny holes in them, making them look like the cookies. You can also use the recipe for individual non filled cookies, and just put some frosting or glaze on them with some sprinkles.

My mom baked hundreds of these wonderful cookies during her life. And we, her daughters, continue to bake them. Fillings that we use are Comstock Cherry Pie filling or stewed apricots.
