You have to thicken jam before putting it in the oven. To do so just add 1 teaspoon of corn starch or even regular flour to it. Mix really well. You may lose a little bit of a shine, but everything will stay in its place this way.
These cookies do not turn out as pictured. The jam oozes and the cookies spread. After 12 minutes of baking, they still appear uncooked. Not planning to make these again.
I make these every Christmas. They look exactly like the picture and turn out wonderful. My mom's favorite!
what a mess I had when I baked these. the cookies spread and the raspberry jam melted onto the baking sheet. I am a seasoned baker, and I followed the recipe closely. This was not a first time baking experience for me. What I can see from your picture, is that they were barely baked or raw to get the results your picture shows. What a waste of butter and jam this recipe was.
