We made another cookie this week for Tuesdays with Dorie. Heather of Randomosity and the Girl chose the Buttery Jam Cookies, which can be found on p.80 of Dorie’s book. I must say that I was not thrilled with these. I guess I was expecting them to be more like the Linzer Sables or thumbprint cookies, but I just found these somewhat lacking in flavor. I think it must have been more me than anyone else, because everyone else who tried them seemed to like them.
I used strawberry jam. Next time I would recommend using more jam because I thought the jam flavor was too subtle. I think this cookie needed more flavor overall. I think maybe some cinnamon or nutmeg would do the trick. Mine also didn’t spread much and just look like blobs. So even though I wasn’t crazy about them, I’m glad that I got to try them. Thanks Heather for your pick. Visit the Tuesdays with Dorie blog to see how everyone else liked them!
