TWD: Buttery Jam Cookies

Ready for Work

Recipe chosen by: Heather of Randomosity and the Girl
Link to TWD Group: Tuesdays With Dorie

I made these back before Heather's week (Dec 16th) but couldn't get the pictures downloaded. I hope it's okay to post them now.

I loved these cookies. I used some strawberry jam I'd bought for another of the Dorie recipes since it was thick and really tasty. I love ginger, so I chunked up some crystallized ginger to add a little punch.

They turned out a lovely light pink color, had a hint of strawberry, and the ginger chunks were a nice surprise.

If I changed anything, I'd try making them into thumbprint cookies with a dollop of the jam. I think that extra bit of jam would give them a little more oomph. Oh, and I had the same experience as everyone else - the cookies didn't spread much. I used my large cookie scoop, and they came out lovely domes. They also were even better the second day (they didn't last a third).

Thank you Heather for picking a recipe that I loved and probably wouldn't have looked at twice!


Oy, we get it, it's pink

Mmm... chunks of ginger... I agree though - a little dollop of jam in the middle would *make* these cookies.

I sort of went the thumbprint route, and they were yummy. And don't worry, I posted these today, too. ;)
