Sugar Free Jelly Filled Cookies

WOW, the holidays are over.  We had a house full, but I am not complaining I was so happy my family came up from Miami to spend Christmas with us.  This was my youngest daughters first Christmas and it was extra special because the whole family got to share it.
We did so many things over the holiday and I kept meaning to post about it all but with so many people here and the craziness of the holidays, I guess time just got away from me.  This week as been all about catch up and clean up, but I finally feel like I have it all under control now and can get back to my normal life.
I did want to post about another cookie we made for the holiday, but really this one is a great cookie for any time of year.  My dad is diabetic so I always try and find new yummy recipe for him whenever he is here.  And since it was Christmas I wanted to make sure to have a special cookie for him.
My sister and I actually made these sugar free jelly filled cookies together so it was a lot of fun.  And my dad loved them which was great, on the down side we all really liked them so poor dad ended up having to share the only sugar free cookie he had.
