Jam Sandwich Cookies

23

For bakery-quality cookies in a hurry, just add butter and milk to our Everyday Baking Mix.

  • Prep:
  • Total Time:
  • Yield: Makes 18

Source: Everyday Food, April 2008

Ingredients

  • 4 cups Everyday Baking Mix, spooned and leveled
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup seedless jam or jelly

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In a food processor, pulse baking mix and butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add milk; pulse until a dough forms.

  2. Drop dough by heaping tablespoons onto sheets, 4 inches apart. (You will fit about 9 cookies to a sheet; bake in two batches to make a total of 36 cookies.) Bake until cookies begin to turn golden but center is still pale, 12 to 14 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  3. Spread flat side of half the cookies with 2 teaspoons jam each; sandwich with remaining cookies.

    I also have a small food processor so I processed the flour, then transferred to a bowl and mixed it the old fashioned way. I did add some flavoring and flattened them with a glass dipped in cinnamon sugar. Rather than jam, I used lemon curd. I really like the combination of tart and sweet. These are a definite winner.

    My food processor is quite small, so I ended up using pastry blender and hands. It's a little more work, but it's worth it! The cookies remind me of something between an Almond Tuile and a Madeleine. Next time I would definitely drop the dough by the teaspoon and press it down a bit before baking--just for thinner texture. I would also reduce the sugar in the initial mix next time as well.

    I have a blender so I'll try using it or maybe I'll use the pastry blender and just have a go at it by hand . Thanks for the input !

    In the olden days before blenders and food processors we used a pastry blender. Or even before that we used 2 knives and cut the shortening or butter into the flour sugar mixture. It takes time but the results are good. Just put ing. into the bowl...a knife in each hand and draw them across the mixture until you achieve the results you want.

    Does your blender have a pulse setting?

    How can I make Everyday Baking mix Jam Sandwich Cookies if I don't own a food processor ? I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks, irishcream.

    I cut the "everyday baking mix" in half and it worked great. They did come out puffy for my taste so I may tweak the recipe next time to see what happens. After the first batch of baking made the cookies a bit smaller and pressed them down with a glass BEFORE baking. This made a big difference and cookies came out flatter and more like the picture above. -My boyfriend put the cookie in the microwave the day after I baked them... came out warm and soooo yummy!

    To Kermis, Instead of having all the leftover cups from the "Everyday Baking Mix" could you split the recipe for the baking mix in half? We only need 4 cups for this cookie recipe... then you'd have only one cup leftover to get rid of? Hope these come out as great as they look! I'm going to try and cut the mix in half when I bake these tomorrow, for I have no interest in trying the other recipes either. I will let everyone know how it turns out!

    I would like to try this recipe but I am not excited about having this Everyday Baking Mix leftover. It appears they have only developed 3 recipes using it and I am not interested in making the pancake sundaes. It sure would be nice if the COMPLETE recipe was given here or if more recipes were developed using this mix.
