Tuesdays With Dorie – Jam Filled Sandwich Cookies (Makeup Post)


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!!).

    Love the star shape! These were a big hit for me, too. I’m going to try and get some more jam in there next time.

  2. They’re so cute! I liked these a lot….more jam would be better, but the cookie part was really good, so I didn’t mind much.

  3. These look fantastic! I saw your post before I made my nutella buttons (I was running behind as usual) and I wavered on my decision for second… I could taste the jam filled cookies 🙂

    We loved these jam cookies. I can’t remember how much jam I used but maybe a whole teaspoon. What I liked best was using a variety of jams for my filling. I am glad that your kitchen is organized so you can bake.

    Your cookies look great. This was a wonderful recipe that we really enjoyed. Adding a little nutella sounds like a great twist to this recipe. I must try that, hubby will be in his glory.
