These were my favorite cookies growing up. My dad loved them too. Then they disappeared from supermarket shelves. I used to be able to get them at a farm market not far from the house. But then they stopped carrying them.
A simple butter cookie with a hardened and sticky raspberry jelly top. These are not to be confused with the cookies from the eastern European Jewish tradition that are filled or topped with a jam-like jelly. No, these are totally artificially wonderful.
They get stuck in your teeth, they are dry enough that they require milk and you can easily eat half a package of them without noticing. They are fab.
If you find them somewhere, let me know.
