TWD: Buttery Jam Cookies

For your consideration: Buttery Jam Cookies from Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan, page 80 featured this week on Tuesdays with Dorie.

Short and sweet today, my dearest sweeties! I have a BOATLOAD of things to do tonight to get ready for the morrow. It's Winter Party for the Little One and I am the Room Mom who needs to help, bring some supplies, teacher gifts and flowers for one of the teacher's half birthday AND some paying work as well, woo hoo! It's a whirlwind I tell you! A whirl wind!

Thank Heavens I made these cookies three weeks ago. I would have been really crazy otherwise ;) (You can see one of the Linzer Sables hanging out in the background.)

These were easy peasy to make - I used peach preserves and while this combo was good and buttery, they didn't taste very peachy. Maybe something stronger like apricot would have been better. Hmm. I might make these again, because they were good and if I do, I'll be trying apricot jam.

Thanks to Heather of Randomosity and the Girl for choosing this recipe. To see what all the other TWDers did with it, check out the blogroll here. If you'd like to try making Dorie’s version of Buttery Jam Cookies for yourself, you can find the recipe on our hostess’s blog, or in Dorie Greenspan's Baking: From My Home to Yours.

  1. The jam taste was definitely very mild. I was really prepared to NOT like these, but I ended up really enjoying them.

    Hope all went well with the party! Those parties can be a stressful thing, even though they are supposed to be fun! For me, it's so much more fun once it's over!!

  2. Good luck getting everything done! This week of kiddie parties/concerts/pajama days/board game days/bring your favorite holiday movie days is nearly killing me. Trying to keep them all straight and remembering what I am supposed to bring/send to all of them is seriously challenging my little brain. Your jam cookies look great! I made them with apricot, and it was still pretty subtle. I think they might just be an understated cookie?

  3. Looks good! But I'm sure you already know this!

  4. Hi there Lisa!!! I adore all things buttery.. I wonder if I can join Baking with Dorie? Is it once a week? These look so warm... do you nibble along the way.. I sure do... naughty me..

  5. It sounds like this is a crazy week all over. I'm helping with Brianna's class party tomorrow. A bunch of kindergarteners buzzed on sugar--what fun! And of course, I volunteered to be the sugar supplier. =) I should really be baking cookies right now, but I think I'm going to get up early and finish them in the morning. At least this week's TWD was a fairly easy one. And your cookies look great!

  6. It appears that everyone's having a busy month! I'm glad you squeezed this one in, because the use of peach jam sounds wonderful.

  7. Yep, I really "dressed" mine up to get more flavor. I used apricot and it wasn't very flavorful, either, but definitely a nice easy cookie.
