Tuesdays with Dorie: Buttery Jam Cookies

More cookies! Seems like we go a few weeks with no cookies and then we have a little run of them. It really fits the holiday season since so many people do cookies exchanges. I was invited to a cookie exchange but I was out of town so I missed out. Maybe next year! This week's selection is from Heather of Randomosity and the Girl. (Sorry I messed this up earlier, I didn't look closely enough at the list order, my apologies!)

Super easy cookie to put together. They really took almost no time, no chilling required either. I used my favorite apricot jam, Bonne Maman. The recipe calls for 1/4 c. of jam but I think I probably could have used a little more. The cookies do brown on the bottoms pretty quickly so I pulled them out after 10 minutes in the oven and let them cool a few minutes. Their weight and texture reminded me of a biscuit. My dough was pretty sticky and I had a hard time scooping it out on the sheet. You really couldn't taste the ginger or the jam in my cookies. Not my favorite cookie recipe of all time but possibly something I might make again with a few variations. They would be excellent with tea I think.

From experience, these are fantastic with tea. I've also been splitting them and smearing more jam on - quite tasty!

Your cookies turned out great! I agree with increasing the jam.
