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.

Testimonials

Del Carmen has been a vendor for Fair Shares for 3+ years now.  We have developed a quality relationship based on trust. Our communications have been seamless. In addition, Fair Shares and its members have been great marketers for our products.  As a (very) small business, we are unable to advertise or market our products, so we have to rely on word of mouth.  Many of our customers are, were, or know Fair Shares members who have recommended our products.

Del Carmen has also benefitted from valuable ideas for use of existing products and suggestions in product development from the Fair Shares community.  I go to them for feedback, knowing I will get good, reliable and useful information.

We thank you, Fair Shares, for your support and commitment to del Carmen. We wish you much continued success.  After all, your success also helps the success of del Carmen and other local vendors and farmers.
