Jam Diagonals

Jen got this recipe from Your Home Based Mom. This is actually the picture from her site. And this is the email Jen sent me:

These cookies are so delicious. I doubled it and put 8 ropes
lengthwise across a cookie sheet. I used strawberry jam on some and peach
jam on some, both were so good. I did one with both strawberry and
peach. The drizzle I made with a lemon off of our tree. They are
definitely worth making. I baked them 14 or 15 minutes. They weren't
done after 12.

Jam Diagonals
1/2 C butter, softened
1/4 C granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
1 1/4 C flour
1/3 C raspberry jam
3/4 C powdered sugar
4 tsp lemon juice
Cream butter, sugar, vanilla and salt until creamy and fluffy. Gradually stir in flour until blended. Divide dough into fourths. On lightly floured surface, with hands, roll each fourth into a 9″ rope. Place 3″ apart on greased cookie sheet. With finger make 1/2″ depression down center of each rope. (Ropes will flatten to about 1″ wide strips). Fill depressions with jam, using a small spoon. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Cool on cookie sheet.
For frosting, blend powdered sugar and lemon juice until smooth and carefully spread over jam. As soon as frosting is set, cut diagonally.
