Wonderful cookies! They must taste really good. A great idea.
Great idea for adding jam to cut down sugar, I’ve been recently adding honey to many recipes instead of sugar and it also works great!
Love looking at your step by step to see how the cookies are made (I rarely bake, that’s why… :)). These cookies look so good!
