Fruit Filled Yummies

Norma DeRemer


I make these every Christms, but thought I'd make a batch today for the week end. They are so easy and good. Years ago my Aunt in Detroit made them and I asked her for the recipe. If your in a hurry and don't have time for making the dough; you can use refrigerated cookie dough instead and add your favorite ready made jam's instead of processing. You might have to add a little corn starch to thicken some brands.
Either way they are so good.
