Sugar-Jam Cookies

sugar jam cookies

Yes, three more days to go before my one and ONLY exam. I’m already tired of studying, but I have to consider myself lucky as others have had 4-5 exams in a week and a half. So I can’t really complain.
After work I really couldn’t be bothered to study or revise, I mean, I’ve already covered my bathroom mirror with all my notes and diagrams, what more can I do without going absolutely nuts? 😛

So lets enjoy some baking, so I have treats to energise myself and my study buddies these days!

INGREDIENTS:

1cup sugar
320gr butter
3 1/2 cups flour (sifted in separate bowl)
1 pinch of salt
1 tbsp milk (have extra if needed)
1 jar of jam (I’m using raspberry)
1/4 cup icing sugar (to sprinkle)

Beat butter and sugar. (Usually, because it is cold now, I put the butter in heat proof bowl and put it in the oven for a minute then take it out and it should be soft enough to beat without making a mess). When combined, add flour little and the time. With your hands combine the ingredients and the add the milk till the dough shapes into a ball. If you need to, work it on a floured surface.
Wrap it in cling film and put in the fridge for half an hour.

Turn on oven 180°. Take out and roll out on working surface. Don’t make it too thin. Cut with any shape you like. Since they will be sandwiched, cut a normal one and the second one, cut the middle (any shape you like)

On the normal shape, spread jam. The second (with the cut out centre) sprinkle with icing sugar and then place on top of the jammed base.

Simply wonderful and flavourful cookies for study breaks. 🙂

I did keep the smaller shapes and with the leftover dough I made small flowers so nothing goes to waste! IMG_8239IMG_8250
