Blackberry Jam Sandwiches with Lemon Icing

Blog post by Kayte.

Misc. food for blog alongs March April 2012 076

The 79th recipe I made from The Modern Baker by Nick Malgieri, was  the one for Blackberry Jam Sandwiches, on page 306.  (We are not  publishing  recipes from the book, so if you like what you see, buy the book and  bake along with or without us).

 The  ingredient list for the cookies and icing:  butter, sugar, vanilla,  lemon extract, egg yolks, flour, blackberry preserves, confectioners’  sugar, and lemon juice.

The recipe goes together easily but needs to  rest in the refrigerator for a bit before rolling and cutting out the  shapes, so plan time for that part.  Once the dough has chilled, it is  wonderful to work with as it rolls out nicely without tearing or  breaking.  The cookies bake quickly, and it is very easy to fill them  with the blackberry preserves once they have cooled.

They turned  out pretty and delicious…the combination of lemon and blackberry is  delightful.  I would make these again…it’s not really an “everyday”  cookie around here, but would be something special and lovely for a  cookie tray.  The only thing I would change is that these were made with  a 3″ cookie cutter as suggested in the book and they are a larger type  cookie…I would use a 2″ cookie cutter (oh, and wouldn’t little 1″ cookies be so cute!) the next time as they are very  sweet and one small one would satisfy one’s sweet tooth just as nicely.   Enjoyed by all.  Definitely a repeat.

If   you would like to bake along or be a part of the Modern Baker  group,   you will find all that, plus a tab to link to the blogs  posting, with the blogroll here.

Here’s the post…I hope you all do better with the drizzling part, everything else is really easy. A great cookie, lemon and blackberry are so good together…I hope they never break up. http://grandmaskitchentable.typepad.com/grandmas_kitchen_table/2012/04/modern-baker-blackberry-jam-sandwiches-cookies.html
