Jammy Cookies

This is a great way to enjoy Ivan's fig jam, or your favorite Hilty jam. The whole wheat flour allows you to pretend they're good for you--and if you eat only one, it will be!

Preparation

 

Ingredients

·         2 cups whole wheat flour

·         1/2 cup sugar

·         1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

·         10 1/2 tablespoons salted butter, room temperature

·         1 large egg, room temperature

·         1 large egg yolk, room temperature

·         3 tablespoons (about) raspberry jam or Ivan's Fig Pecan jam

Preheat oven to 400°. Whisk flour, sugar, and baking powder in a large bowl. Add butter; using your fingertips, rub in butter until coarse meal forms. Whisk egg and yolk in a bowl; add to flour mixture; stir just to blend.

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Measure dough by 2 tablespoonfuls and roll into balls. Place on prepared sheets, spacing 2" apart. Make an indentation in center of each ball; fill each with 1/2 teaspoon jam.

Bake cookies until golden, 12–14 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
