The recipe for these jam jams was submitted anonymously on the Everyday Recipes site. It was in need of a picture so I decided to give them a try. Very simple ingredient list, and little to no work or time to create. You could also experiment with different jams and jellies or even strawberry jam and cream! The possibilities are endless. 


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • dash of salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • Strawberry jam

Cream together butter and sugar. ( I used margarine, 2 1/2 cup blocks.) Add in the egg and vanilla. Mix flour, baking powder and salt together. Gradually add into wet ingredients. Combine with spoon or use the lowest setting on your mixer. 

Roll tablespoon full of dough into ball. Place on cookie sheet and flatten with your hand. You can use a fork but it will leave marks on your cookies. 

Bake at 350°F for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely on rack.

Match up similar shaped and sized cookies to make your jam jams. Add about a tablespoon or less of jam to flat side of one cookie and stick flat side of the other to it.

And there you go, homemade jam jams! Yummy! Place in a covered container to keep them moist. As you can see from the pic on the right, I could not wait to try these little sweeties!
