Jam Filled Sandwich Cookies

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.

Tuesdays With Dorie is an international baking group working our way through Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. We don't publish the recipes, instead we encourage you to buy the book. To see if the others thought go here.

  2. I can't believe you managed to make 20! I thought I did okay with 16. All of those fillings sound wonderful.

  3. We loved them as well with raspberry jam. What a great idea to have all kinds of jam. I only made 14!

  4. Seems everyone loved these and yes, squeezing the last out of the dough, I got 18 I think?

  5. I made mine a bit bigger and still managed ten by using up all the dough. Love the idea of surprise filling. :)

  6. I really can't wait to make these. It's cool here so I don't have a heat battle - understand that the dough softens up quickly. I hope that I can get these made this coming week. I also think the ones with the crack are most interesting.

  7. Way less fussy than Hamentashen, I think (I can never fold those triangles correctly and always end up with a funky blob thingy).
    That being said - these were tasty and I was sad when they were gone.

  9. They were great cookies - disappointing that your son didn't have much to say about them. I did more than one flavour too, and loved guessing which was which.
