Tips & Thoughts

  1. You might see that I’ve used apricot jam in some of my photos (on Instagram). I used store-bought apricot jam. Personally, I think strawberry jam and raspberry jam work best.
  2. If you like Christmas spices and a more strongly flavored cookie, feel free to add more cinnamon/vanilla/cardamom/allspice. Completely up to you!
  3. Using a perforated mat really helps in getting a flat cookie – looks nicer.

Quantity: approx. 7~8 cookies (7cm diameter, 3mm thick)

How to store/serve:

I like the cookies crisp so in this case, the best way is to make the jam and cookies - DO NOT assemble them and store them separately (jam in the fridge for a week, cookies at room temp in an air-tight container up to a week). Assemble them right before serving! If you assemble them in advance the jam will turn the cookie soft. BUT, if you like them soft do assemble them in advance. Completely up to you.
