Lemon & Blackberry Jam Cookies

I was experimenting with cookies again.  I decided to try a combination with lemon and jam.  Actually it reminds me of biscotti only it I didn’t bake again after cutting. I may try as more of a traditional bar cookie next time.

Lemon & Blackberry Jam Cookies

  • 1/2 stick butter – softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbs blackberry jam ~ or your favorite flavor

Cream together butter and sugar; add lemon zest, lemon juice, and egg.  Stir in flour and baking powder.  Roll dough into about an 8 inch log.  Flatten and make an indentation in the middle.  Spread jam into indent and bake at 350 degrees for 15 – 20 minutes until edges have browned.  Allow to cook 2 minutes and cut into desired size strips (mine were about an inch); cool on wire rack before serving.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
