Tuesdays with Dorie- Buttery Jam Cookies

This weeks TWD, was chosen by Heather of Randomosity and the Girl. The cookie madness continues with her choice of Buttery Jam Cookies. It is a really simple and easy recipe to make. Dorie's instructions call for apricot jam, however I used Raspberry (as it was what was in my fridge). I did pull them out of the oven after a few minutes, to flatten them out a bit.
These were an interesting "cookie", in fact I'm thinking these are more like biscuits rather than cookies. They have a "cakey" texture, and the jam flavor was very mild. I can see them being served with afternoon tea. :) I personally, am a "crispy cookie" girl..... so most likely this recipe will not be repeated. But that said, I always enjoy making a new recipe regardless of the outcome.

I love your plate! These were definitely good with tea, and since they aren't "cookie-like" they're good for breakfast too :)

Yes, biscuits is an apt description of these. Not bad, just not extraordinary.

Looks like your turned out perfect. I liked them, but I'm pretty sure I won't make them again. Great job, though.

I used raspberry also. I think it needed more jam I needed a stronger raspberry taste, but thats just me!
