Squeeze cookies filled with jam

By on 07.09.12

Two years ago I made jam filled cookies for the first time. Those were thumb cookies, very easy also but these are even easier because piping the dough is faster than molding by hand. These cookies are not really sweet themselves, the sweetness has to come from the jam. I’m not sure how to call these, I’ll just go with filled squeeze cookies.

As I already said, these cookies are easy to make. You don’t need a mixer for these, a whisk is all you need! Oh, and a piping bag to make them look nice. Of course you could also make them by putting a spoonful of dough on your baking sheet. You can make a lot of different ones at the same time if you use different kind of jams.  This time I used raspberry jam, next time I want to try pineapple and strawberry jam. I also want to try it Nutella. I think that would be a great cookie!
