I still have a little of my spring time jam leftover and these cookies were a great way to use some of it up before hitting expiration. I decided to make 3 different flavors to see which I liked best, peach, blackberry and strawberry.
The dough for the cookies is pretty simple to make up. I was especially excited that it was one that could be rolled out on waxed paper. There is quite a bit of refrigeration time till the can go in the oven. My blackberry jelly was the easiest bit to scoop onto these and my old fashioned runny peach jam was a bit of a challenge. I really loved the cracked look on these cookies, especially because it helped me determine which flavor was which when they were done. A bit of advice, I took a bit of my scraps after the 2nd roll out of the dough and made a cookie without jam but through the rest away. I wish I’d baked up the rest of the scraps since these are good even without the jam
Normally I’m not a huge fan of getting my oven going in early September as we typically are still in the triple digits here in the desert. However, I’m starting to get excited about Fall and these seemed to go pretty well as an accompaniment to poached pears. These cookies were pretty delicate in taste and would probably go well with an after dinner coffee. We really enjoyed all the flavors, even my runny peach jam one.
