I really enjoy cookies with filling like the recipe that I am sharing today. I made these back in July, and am so glad I found the recipe! I normally just buy (on occasion) the filled ones at the store. Now I can make them and it’s actually a pretty simple recipe. One of the best parts is, I can use my homemade jam too!
I found this recipe in the little cookbook that came with our Food Network mixer we bought. I made some with Strawberry jam and some with Peach jam. I hope you enjoy the recipe!
Thanks for stopping by!
