These yummy drop cookies are so pretty and festive! My family won’t let a christmas go by without making a double batch of these yummy treats. I promise they are just as delicious as they are beautiful. I’ve made them with both raspberry and strawberry jam, but I’m positive they would be just as delicious with cherry or apricot!
