BakingChic ~ Shortbread & Jam

The last time I posted shortbread cookies on the blog, my two little boys were much smaller, practically babies. I look back now and smile because they were so CUTE!! You can visit the recipe if you like,  here 🙂

We are making Shortbread again!  Another Shortbread recipe with Jam!  Many moves later, many changes, but we still share the same love, SHORTBREAD!

Don’t let these little boys fool you, they look nice and sweet in the pictures below, but I had to defend these cookies from being

LICKED,

POKED,

PICKED

AND

EATEN,

           before I could place them on the cookie sheet! They sure make life so much fun,

and I wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂

This Jam was amazing, and was gifted to me by my dear friend Daisy over at Developpe`…Graceful Becoming.

Thank you Daisy, it was just wonderful for our treats!

Ingredients:

2 cups flour

1 cup butter

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions:

Preheat oven 325

In a large bowl cream the softened butter with an electric mixer until smooth. And sugar and mix until fluffy;  add salt and flour until fully combined.  Sprinkle powdered sugar on a surface. With a rolling pin,  roll out dough until it is 1/4 inch thick. Cut out cookies  and place on cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool cookies on cooling rack for 5-10 minutes. Once fully cooled, spoon a little dab of your favorite jelly on your shortbread.

Enjoy 🙂

      Thanks so much Mom! I will have to make them for you the next time we get together! They are too good not to share. I am sure the boys would love to have their Grammy try them out!

      Aww thanks Daisy, I am glad I put that jam to proper use because I was tempted to eat it all by itself!
