My Nana made these cookies for all her grandchildren every time we went for a visit. They remind me so much of my childhood and all the wonderful memories I have from my Nana and Papa's home. They are delicious, and as Nana would call them "grandchildren's favorite." For more of the story and pictures, visit my blog here: lindscooks.blogspot.com/...jams.html
Once creamed, add eggs. Continue to beat until smooth and very creamy.
In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
Once combined, gradually add into the cream mixture. Mix well, then add in vanilla.
Roll dough into small balls, place on prepared cookie sheet (parchment paper or non-stick mat) then flatten with the bottom of a cup coated in powdered sugar.
Bake for about 10-12 minutes, depending on your oven. You want them to be a light golden brown. If you prefer a crispier cookie, bake for 13-14 minutes. Spread raspberry jam over cookies while they are still warm. Press another cookie on top. Serve them on your Nana's china, or whatever you have on hand. Nana wrote in her original recipe to hide 5 if you want any for yourself. They go quick!
