Happy holidays

Thanks sra and many other friends for inquiring about my absence these days. My son's school,birthday party ,LasVegas trip and many more reasons for not paying attention to this favourite hobby of mine. Anyway iam back to rejuvenate my blogging.

And I start with fun filled cookies perfect for this holiday season. Actually I prepared this cookies for halloween celebrations but somehow i got lazy and didn't posted at that time.
This recipe is adapted from a book called
'Mrs Field's 101 cookies". I am really inspired by this woman who takes time to cook and formulate new varieties apart from taking care of her big family. It is indeed a very tough task. Kudos to you Mrs.Fields.
Her cookies are simple to make yet very rich in flavour and Jam filled cookies is one such example.

Jam Filled Cookies.

3/4 cup softened butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 and 1/2 cup all purpose flour
Any jam (i used strawberry jam)


In a bowl mix butter and sugar. Then add egg yolks and vanilla. Beat with electric mixer until the mixture becomes light and fluffy. Add the flour and mix thoroughly.
Wrap the dough tightly in a plastic bag and refigerate for 1 hr. Using a rolling pin flatten the dough to 1/4 inch thickness.

Cut circles with a cookie cutter and place 1/2 of them on a baking sheet. Now drop approx 1/2 tsp of jam in the center of each cookie disk. Top with another cookie disk. Seal the edges of two cookies with a fork.

Bake in a oven of 325 F for 15 min or until the edges begin to brown. Very easy..isn't it? and the end result is very satisfying cookies perfect for holidays esp kids like them a lot. Happy cooking.
