jam-filled sandwich cookies

I may not be going back to school this week, but in solidarity with the children, I am happy to indulge in some after-school-style snacks.  Oh, wait– I don’t have children.  More Jam-Filled Sandwich Cookies for me, I guess!

These little shortbread cookies are so simple, yet so tasty.  I was initially expecting them two be to separate cookies glued together with jam, but instead, two cookies are sealed together to form one, with jam hiding in (and, ehem, sometimes peeking out from) the center.  Almost like baby handpies.  I made two flavors, sour cherry and concord grape.  Despite the fact that my kitchen has basically no climate control, I didn’t really have any trouble with these in the heat. The dough came together in like five seconds and rolled out no problem between two sheets of parchment.  I chilled it before cutting and afterwards I chilled the rounds before assembly.  As I applied the jam blobs to the bottoms, the dough rounds softened just enough to not crack too much when I sealed on the tops.  It all worked out deliciously well.

  1. Oh I love this idea!

  2. These WERE a winner, weren’t they? And perfect for back to school week!

  3. Your cookies look great. Mine did not make it as an after school snack they were all gone before I could even put the confectioner’s suger on.

  4. Your fillings sound delicious. Chilling the dough definitely helped me with the cookie assembly.

  5. I like the way the crackle-topped cookies look; they look like they have more character (especially the one that is oozing with jam)!

  6. Looks amazing and the pictures are great!

  7. Perfect snack, so delicious. Yours look wonderful.

  8. Great flavour choices and I love the effect the writing against the parchment has in your photo. 🙂

  9. I like the cookies best when the jam peeks out. Sour cherry jam sounds wonderful, I need to try that.

  10. Love the way you marked the flavors on your parchment paper. What a great idea!

  11. Wow these look so good!!

  12. Both flavors sound absolutely delicious (and I love the picture with a little bit of jam peeking out the top)
