A web search yields about fifty different cookie recipes also called Bachelor Buttons, but they are ALL WRONG and DO NOT LISTEN TO THEM. These are the one and only kind of Bachelor Buttons you need. Especially if you are looking for a buttery double-layered cookie with a bit of raspberry jam in the middle that is absolutely perfect for dunking in a cup of tea.

Yes, I said dunking. In tea. Trust me on this one.
