Criss Cross Cookies
3 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup margarine or butter
1/4 cup milk
2 cups jam
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Preheat oven to 350-375° F
Sift dry ingredients. Cut in margarine as for pie dough. Add eggs beaten with milk and stir to form a soft dough.
Set aside about 1/3 of the dough and spread the rest evenly in shallow pan. Press around sides.
Spread with jam (can spread with raspberry on one half and apricot on other half). Sprinkle nuts over top.
Make strips out of reserved dough, about one inch. Arrange lattice fashion, if strips break, pinch together.
