Aren’t these the prettiest cookies? The minute I saw them I knew they needed to be part of my Christmas cookie spread!
I don’t typically love cookies with jam but these are officially the exception to that rule. The dough is a lot like shortbread in that it’s buttery and not super sweet so it’s the perfect pairing with a sweet jam and glaze. I could easily eat my weight in these!
They look a lot more difficult than they were. The dough came together in no time and was really easy to roll out into the right shape. And then less than 20 minutes later, I had lovely little cookies
that aren’t going to make it into the freezer like I’d planned.
One note on the recipe – you can glaze the cookies before you slice them or after. I like the look of the glaze going down the sides so I did after but they look a lot “cleaner” if you glaze before cutting. Gorgeous either way if you ask me!
