From the kitchen of Ann Marie Barkwell. This
recipe was given to me by neighbor Esther
Olson, back in the 70's. The oatmeal cookies
are filled with raspberry jam.

3/4 c sugar
1/2 c water
2 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 c oatmeal
1 tsp almond extract
Drop by tsp on UNgreased cookie sheets.
Make small indentation & fill with:
red raspberry jam
Bake @ 400, 10-12 minutes

Spoon a little jam into
I found this dough sticky, so I added a couple tablespoons of flour. I then
rolled the floured spoon around the edge of the cookie (I was afraid it would
spread). The cookies need to be removed immediately or they stick to the
sheet, but the cookie is thin under the jam & may break open when moved
too soon, so I recommend using a silpat or parchment. I put a little extra
jam on the cookies when they came out of the oven (because I like
jam). - Stephanie
