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

·         1 large egg, room temperature

·         1 large egg yolk, room temperature

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

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