Fab Food Friday

>> Friday, July 13, 2007

I have a very difficult time keeping Brenna from helping me when I bake. She is very interested in helping; from measuring ingredients to licking the beaters- and everything in between. Soon I'll have to take all the recipes she helps with and print her own cookbook.

A couple of weeks ago we made
Aunt Maggie's Jam Thumbprint Cookies

These were great fun as they involved poking...

The recipe came from Everyday Food.
Here's what you'll need:
24 T (3 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 c sugar
1 egg
3 1/4 c all purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
3/4 c jam (any type)

What to do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until smooth. Add egg and beat until completely combined.
With mixer on low, add flour, and mix until just incorporated.

Shape dough into 1 inch balls (about 2T each). Place on baking sheet at least 3" apart.

Moisten thumb with water and gently press the center of each ball, making an indentation about 1/2 inch wide and 1/4 inch deep. In microwave or on stove heat jam until liquified; spoon about 1/2 t into each indentation.

Bake until cookies are golden brown around the edges, 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely. If storing place into an airtight container at room temperature up to 2 days.

This will make about 54 cookies so the recipe is terrific for gatherings. I sent a bunch to work with Doug. He is teaching a class on Fridays and shared them with his "students". I got rave reviews... And requests for more treats. Today I sent sweet zucchini cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. Watch for that recipe next week!

YUM!!! You just might be motivating me to bake something this weekend.

Just think, Brenna will be baking you treats before you know it -- while you're sitting with your feet up, sipping tea!
