Oh just delicious little suckers! I love anything raspberry and these don't disappoint. Very good. I actually didn't roll them , I chilled the dough for an hour, and make teaspoon sized balls, dropped them on the cookie sheet and made them into thumbprint cookies with the preserves in the middle. - 12/23/07
