TWD: Buttery Jam Cookies
This week's Tuesday's with Dorie pick was Buttery Jam Cookies, chosen by Heather of Randomosity and the Girl.
These were a soft butter cookie, flavored with our choice of jam and a touch of ginger. From Dorie's description, I was expecting a butter cookie flavored with ribbons of sweet, fruity jam, which I was looking forward to. But it was not to be, since the jam was thoroughly mixed in.
Once I got over my disappointment about the lack of jammy ribbons, I decided I liked them. The day they were baked, the ginger was a little much, but by the second day the ginger flavor seemed to have mellowed and I enjoyed them more.
I used cherry preserves and so mine had a little extra pizazz in the form of chunks of cherry.
I would make these again, they were quite tasty. For the recipe, please check out Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking: From My Home to Yours", or see Heather's website, above.
OK, see you next week, when the TWD bunch attempts authentic Butterscotch Pudding... made with real butter and real Scotch (I'll have to share my Scotch buying adventure with you then.)
