Cookie recipe lost in time (like tears in rain)

MoreMolecules | Dec 19, 201407:39 AM     6

The holiday season has brought a memory of a cookie I once baked with my long departed mother. No one else in my family will remember this cookie, and googling hasn't turned up a match, so I thought I'd turn to the chow community to help me ID this cookie.

The finished product was a diamond shaped sandwich cookie with raspberry jam in between. I recall spreading the jam on a large baked piece of cookie dough, then carefully placing another matching large and rather fragile cookie on top and then slicing into 1 inch diamonds.

The other distinguishing feature that I remember about these cookies was that the top had a white powdered sugar icing, but then you put dots of a darker color, or maybe even chocolate, on top and then used a toothpick to "marble" the two icings together. They were really beautiful cookies.

My only recollection of the name is that the cookies were, or claimed to be, Russian in origin. Any ideas would be much appreciated!
