Good thing about the dough of this cookies is you can chill it up to 2 days isn’t that great!

Also it’s very fun to make it with children they can roll the balls and make the indentations and fill each round with different jam.

When grandma is in the kitchen for us it’s great way to reach the top tips&surprise secrets of her recipes and for her to pass the delicious family recipes to grandchildren and sometimes the greatest thing is just to do and share something together.
