TWD - Buttery Jam Cookies
This week's Tuesdays with Dorie (TWD) recipe was chosen by Heather of Randomosity and the Girl: Buttery Jam Cookies. Like you read it, it has jam in it. When I heard about the challenge I thought you would add jam after the cookies where baked or something similar to the Linzer Sablés, but not! You incorporate de jam (whichever flavor you love) to the dough.
This cookies have a very soft consistency and they are excellent with a cup of tea or coffee. The flavor is not strong at all, it's very subtle and they don't have much color either. Once you bake them, they stay closer to the pale side than the gold. I used apricot jam in mine, and doubled the amount so it would have more flavor. Also, I added 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon.
The original recipe, you can find it at "Baking from my home to yours" by Dorie Greenspan on page 80.
