Jam Jam Cookies

Jam Jam Cookies

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.

Wow, best jam jam cookies ever. They were super buttery, the jam between the two cookies made the texture of these cookie sandwiches cake-like, which was just delicious. In every bite, I had some raspberry jam, some cake-y and buttery cookies, just threw me to the roof. Gave some to our neighbours, they were all like "hmmm, so good..."
