This is my first try at baking with the "Tuesdays with Dorie" baking group! Ta-daaaah! The recipe looked pretty difficult, but turned out pretty well. My husband liked them a lot. We both tasted them warm from the oven and the dough was flaky and delish! The combination of raspberry jam, cinnamon sugar, nuts, raisins, & chocolate for the filling was good...maybe a little much, but we liked it. A lot of work for a few cookies. I don't usually spend so much time for cookies, but these are kind of special. Both my husband and I decided we might like either no chocolate or less chocolate with this recipe. Might have to try some with just fruit and nuts next time. This recipe was chosen by Grace of Piggy’s Cooking Journal so check out her blog for this recipe! Thank you Grace...I've always wanted to taste these homemade! They taste nothing like the stuff you buy at the store!
I have a wonderful husband. We even worked together for a long time! Now I'm not working outside the home and we are a couple of empty nesters (except for our doggies & kitties!) I've always loved to cook and bake, just never had the time!
