This week on Tuesdays with Dorie our baking assignment was Jam Filled Sandwich Cookies on pages 275-276.
After reviewing the directions, these cookies were reminiscent of the hamentashen I make every year. Given the amount of work that goes into these cookies I was disappointed that the recipe only made 12 but lucky me using every scrap of dough that I could I made 20! I used what jam I had on hand; strawberry, orange marmalade and raspberry. It is a surprise every time you pick one on what filling you will get. My jam-loving husband liked these and my son couldn't say anything negative about them which is all can hope for these days. I did like them and thought the ones with the cracks in them were the most interesting. I would make them again.
