Today marks the third time ClaraJane’s 4th + 5th grade class has made cookies “together.”
The recipe is “Jam Ribbon Cookies,” although CJ made hers with chocolate.
Here it is:
COOKIE INGREDIENTS: 1/2C unsalted softened butter, 1/4C granulated sugar, 1 egg yolk, 1t vanilla extract, 1/4t salt, 1C flour, 1/3C any jam or chocolate of your choice,
GLAZE INGREDIENTS: 1/2 t Vanilla Extract, 1T milk/heavy cream & 1/2C powdered sugar.
TO MAKE THE DOUGH: Cream butter & sugar together until smooth. Add 1 egg yolk and 1 tsp Vanilla extract. Mix in 1C flour. Roll into two thick-ish (11″x3″) LOGS. Make indent along its length, like a trough.
Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
Remove from oven and reshape the troughs.
Add jam (or chocolate) into the trough, and bake for another 10-15 minutes.
Remove from oven and dribble glaze in ribbon-like lines.
Cut slices at slight angle, and enjoy!
Special thanks to Ms. Stacey for her imagination and leadership in creating these wonderful memories for our kids during these surreal times.
