This is the most traditional Austrian version of this cookie I could find, trying to match my grandmother's recipes that she didn't leave behind. She used Black Currant preserves; if you can't find it, use the more American accepted filling of Seedless Raspberry Jam. ;) (This recipe makes only one dozen cookies, so you may want to double, triple or quadruple!)
