Buttery Jam Cookies

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Chocolatl

From the Joy the Baker web site. Any thick jam or preserves can be used in place of the cherry preserves.

Top Review by Tys Kitchen

Used cheery preserves but was disappointed there was no cherry flavour. We liked the taste of the cookies.
