Buttery Lingonberry Jam Cookies -- Tuesdays with Dorie


Thank you to Heather of Randomosity and the Girl who chose Buttery Jam Cookies as our TWD treat of the week! These were wonderful and probably our family favorite cookie that we've tried so far in Dorie's book. I baked at 350 (my standard for cookies) instead of 375 and decided to roll the cookies into little balls and then flatted them a little before baking. I did my first sheet as a drop cookie and they looked more like jagged drop biscuits and didn't spread at all. You can see in the picture below the ones on the left were the rolled ones. They were really easy to roll so that was a plus.

Here is a shot of the bottoms, which ended up nicely browned even though the top of the cookie was rather pale. Some powdered sugar really dressed these little gems up.

I used lingonberry jam -- a favorite of mine that I first had in Sweden years ago, and now I must have in my pantry or fridge at all times :)



I know that of all the TWD cookies we've tried so far these will probably be made most often since they are easy and the flavor is wonderful, I love the fruity sweetness from the jam and you can't really put your finger on the ginger but it gives it a little kick. Can't wait to try another batch with a different jam!

Andrea, your double snowman plate is the cutest thing ever -- I want one! I am so glad that you loved these -- maybe I need to try them with lingonberry jam and ginger! I like how you flattened them a bit; I think that makes them much prettier. I agree that these are nice and easy to whip up! Glad you enjoyed!

Lingonberry jam - great idea! I think this cookie recipe needs the extra kick of a berry jam. I did apricot and it was just too bland.

Is that not the cutest snow man plate ever! I have a thing for snowmen! My collection has grown quite large over the past two years. I love your cookies and Im glad you thought they were wonderful. I used grape jam in mine and my girls loved them piled high with vanilla frosting!

Oh, I love the Santa tray.

What a lovely cake plate, Andrea. Very cute!
The cookies sound very delicious. I saw Lingonberry jam at the grocery store, but never really bought it. Maybe I should try it one day.
Cheers,
Elra
