Tuesdays with Dorie: Jam Filled Sandwich Cookies

Jam Filled Sandwich Cookies|Frankly Entertaining

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!)

  1. Your cookies look fantastic. I found that
    leaving the dough in the frig for 2 hours was a bit much, I had a difficult time trying to work the dough. When I did the second piece I let it soften and it was more pliable to work with, especially when trying to close the cookies. I will admit, these were delicious.

  2. Homemade currant jam would be fantastic in these cookies, but I think just about any jam would be. Your cookies look wonderful.

  3. Your cookies look great! I was also a little disappointed that we only got about a dozen cookies after all of that work. The taste more than made up for it, though.

  4. I have to admit I’m glad to have a really good small batch cookie recipe. Now that all my nieces and nephews are grown up, seconds (and thirds and fourths) aren’t so much of an issue anymore. I loved working with this dough – it was only fiddly as it warmed and that was easily fixed by putting it back in the fridge for ten minutes.

  5. I am impressed that you make your own jam. I used a cookie cutter that was just shy of 2 inches and I was able to get 20!

  6. Six kids! I’d be doubling EVERY recipe with that size crew. Heck, this was barely enough for those of us left in the empty nest.
