Continuing the TWD cookie theme of the past couple of weeks, Heather of Randomosity and the Girl chose Buttery Jam Cookies as this week's recipe. They turned out to be delicious little cakey domes of goodness, and a welcome break from the cookie cutters :)
These were fairly straightforward, with the only unique ingredients being a tiny bit of ginger and, of course, the jam. I used the same raspberry jam that went into my Linzer Sables, because it is so sweet it hurts my teeth, and I love it.
I like to line up the ingredients in the order they're going in to the mix;)
Can I please tell you how cute this is? Yes, I got yelled at when A. found it (no room, blah blah blah). But come on. Adorable. And kinda useful, at least in this case:)
To scoop these out, I used my #40 disher. It was definitely bigger than the teaspoon size Dorie suggested, but I liked the larger size, and I got exactly 24 cookies.
They spread out a little, but only just enough to enhance their cuteness.
I liked them a lot, especially when they were fresh out of the oven and just a little chewy in the middle. I think I would have liked some more jam flavor, though, or maybe a bit more ginger, which I didn't think showed up at all. But, overall, very tasty and easy-to-make treats! Thanks, Heather, for this yummy pick :) Don't forget to check out the rest of the TWD bakers, and if you haven't already signed up for my apron giveaway, go sign up now! :)
