Another winning recipe this week from Baking Chez Moi. I was a little worried that it was going to be bland because the ingredients are so simple, but I was proven wrong. These sandwiches are the perfect mix of butter and jam. They remind me a little bit of my grandmother’s Christmas cookies, but with jam.
I’m glad I paid attention to the instructions, because the crumbly texture of the dough would have worried me, but I just mixed it a little longer, and then kneaded it a couple of times on the counter. The recipe calls for the dough to be chilled for a couple of hours, but it was fine after about an hour. I didn’t have any issues with the dough cracking, and they cooked really evenly.
I cannot get over how delicious these are. The texture is almost velvety, it’s so smooth. I used a raspberry jam, but I’m interested in trying it with some of my homemade currant jam. My only complaint about this recipe is that it only made 9 cookies. I would have loved a few extra to snack on (when you have six kids, 9 cookies don’t go that far!)
