Thumbprint Jam Cookies: The Cookies

So I finished my cookies and pictures will be up soon I promise. I used the recipe from here: Make sure you leave the butter out for a long time so it comes to room temperature; thats the only way to guarentee perfect cookies. I had more jam than batter so I recomend doubling the cookie recipe.

Jam Cookies: Jam



16oz (2 cups) of dried apricots and frozen strawberries
1 1/3 cups of Orange Juice
2/3 cups of honey
desired amount of whiskey, bristol creme, grand mariner etc (optional)


  1. cut the apricots into little pieces
  2. put in a saucer on medium heat with honey, orange juice and desired liquor
  3. stir occaisonally and wait until all liquid is boiled out. Turn down the heat to low and let simmer
  4. repeat the same steps for the strawberries

First Timer: Jam Cookies!

I've made hamentaschen (I'll post the recipe later) so now I'm trying something similar. There's two steps: Making the Jam and then making the cookies.
