E13011012b33abff7d1f 550

Jam filled cookies, traditionally from Eastern Canada but popular around the world. Some know this as a Christmas cookie but it's good any time of year.















¾ cup butter
or shortening, softened
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup light corn syrup
or agave
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon lemon zest
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 ½ cups fruit jam
or jelly, any kind, apricot works well


In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Beat in the eggs, corn syrup and lemon zest.

In another bowl sift or whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir together until combined. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Roll out the dough on a well floured surface fairly thin and cut out rounds with a cookie cutter.

Place on an ungreased baking sheet and bake at 375℉ (190℃) F for 8 minutes.

Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Once the cookie are cool, place a teaspoon of your favorite jam or jelly onto the bottom of one of the cookies and top with another one.

Honey, maple syrup or 1 cup of fine sugar mixed with 1/4 hot water all work well.

My aunt used to make these. What she would do once they were cooled and assembled, was seal them in a container for a day or so. This would allow the jam to really swap into the cookie and make for a really nice soft, slightly chewy cookie.

When my grandmother was still alive she made jam jams every week and they were very good I loved her jam jams very much.
