TWD: Buttery Jam Cookies


This weeks recipe was picked by Heather of Randomodity and the Girl. The recipe can be found on her blog or in Dorie Greenspans Baking book.

I was looking forward to another round of cookies, these were drop cookies so pretty simple to do, no rolling, no cutting, just spoon them on the baking sheet and that's it.
They sounded great, butter, jam, what's not to like? Well they were very, very bland, they lacked taste. It wasn't crunchy, but also not really soft, it tried to be a lot of things, but didn't shine. We all agreed here that this was the recipe we liked least so far.

Oh well, there is always butterscotch pudding next week, butter, booze, what's not to like ;-)

I have to admit, I liked the simplicity of them. Not as in-your-face as the chocolate chunkers, for example :) Sorry you weren't a fan, but the butterscotch pudding should be right up your alley!

We really liked these, but you are correct that they are sort of bland. lucky for me I like bland I guess. Happy december!

I agree. Not the best cookie out there. Bring on the scotch! Er, butterscotch...

Your cookies are awfully pretty!

I also found them to be very mild, but I can see them being good with a warm beverage of some sort.

Thank you! I was beginning to think I was crazy because everyone else seemed to love them so much. Bland and not too exciting. Oh well, next week!
