Sandwich cookies is a bit of a misnomer… more like jam filled, full stop. Hubby was confused why they weren’t Linzers! A little late to the game on this at any rate. This recipe was baked the weekend that we were moving in to our new place, and I am sure I don’t have to explain why I couldn’t make them then.
Nevertheless we are settling in. There are still a great many boxes to be unpacked, but then we are still figuring out furniture in many places too. But the kitchen is done, so there is that.
In any event, I really thought these were quite easy to make, and only wished the recipe yielded more – and mine did yield several more than the recipe yield despite using a slightly larger cutter. I might double or triple the batch next time. I was also a little sad that they weren’t more jammy. I did sieve the jam (Strawberry) so wondering if that played a part. What was everyone else’s experience here?
All told they were so buttery and flavorful. I added some crystal sugar to the top for a little sparkle and crunch. The flavor reminded me of those Royal Dansk butter cookies that people set out at Christmas, but softer and better. So easy to make (and eat!!).
