JAM COOKIES <3
All Hail…….. Sweet…Fruityy…Chewyyyy… Jam Cookies are here !!!
My butteryy and tangyy Jim Jam cookies will melt your heart!!
These gorgeous looking Jam Filled Cookies are soo tasty…….. And the bestest part about them is that you have super fun making them. They are so so easy to make. I made about 2 batches of cookies and they were a favorite in the house. They look so pretty and the jam is the high light of these buttery cookies.
They are so buttery and chewyyy- which is the essence of these cookies……. As a kid most of us have loved Jam Filled Cookies…. They are like a treat to the eyes and the jam in it is so attractive looking.
The Choice of Jam can be totally yours… You could make right from Strawberry jam cookies to pineapple raspberry or blueberrry…. alll taste heavenlyyyy…
Honestly, this was the first time I was baking a Jam Filled Cookie. Though the cookie is really easy to make it could be tricky at times. You might end up overfilling the Jam or the Jam would spill all over the cookies etc.
Welll….. even though all these thoughts were there in my mind I had to make them. And I BAKED them late night 😛
These cookies require a lot of patience. Since the dough is buttery you need to let it rest in the oven for at least 2 hours. I kept it for almost 3 hours. This makes the cookies soft and helps it rise!!
I was totally surprised by the way they turned out….so colorful and so tastyyyy….. AWESOME !!!!!
Do try baking them…. they are soo much fun making. 😀 And the baking time of these cookies is really less as you want your cookie to be chewy and soft.
