Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F( 190 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Beat in the egg and water. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the butter mixture until well blended.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut with a 2 inch round cookie cutter. Put half of the cookies onto a cookie sheet and spread 1/2 of a teaspoon of plum jam in the center of each one. With a thimble, or small cookie cutter , cut the center out of the remaining cookies. Place these on top of the jam topped cookies to make sandwiches. Press together. Bake cookies for 10 minutes then remove to a rack to cool.

I followed the recipe exactly except I added a tbsp of Vanilla extract to the mixture. These were delicious and soft! I used plum butter, and raspberry jam then sprinkled with white sugar on top. These take some time to make, and the dough does not need to be refrigerated. Will definitely make them again when I have about 1.5-2 hours to spare! :)

I used blackberry jam because that's what I had available. The boys really liked these cookies, and they weren't hard to make. They look neat too. They do take some time though.
