"Fun treats that your kids will love!"


  1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  1/4 cup butter
  1 egg
  2 tablespoons ground almonds
  1/4 cup sugar
  1 cup of your favorite E. Waldo Ward Preserves or Jam
  1/3 cup confectioners sugar for decoration


1   Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets.

2  Sift the flour into a bowl and cut in the butter or margarine. Mix in the sugar and almonds. Using a fork, mix in the egg until dough becomes stiff.

3 Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Roll out dough into a thin layer and cut into rounds, 2 inches wide. Re-roll trimmings and cut until you have 20 rounds. Place rounds on cookie sheet.

4Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until light brown. Let cool on the sheets for about 3 minutes, then transfer to wire racks.

5When biscuits are completely cold, spread half of the rounds with a thin layer of preserves and sandwich together. Lightly dust with confectioners sugar.
