Jam Shortbread Cookies

The minute I saw this in the April 2013 Food Network Magazine I knew I'd make it. We're talking 5 pantry ingredients... and can salt even be counted??? They made it with a few different colored jams, that was very pretty too. I think these cookies would be a perfect Easter treat:@)

Jam Shortbread-from Food Network Magazine
1 1/2 C A/P flour
1/3 C sugar
Pinch of salt
10 Tblsp unsalted butter at room temp-I used salted
6 Tblsp preserves (any flavor)
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line an 8 inch square dish with aluminum foil, leaving an over hang.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together. 
  3. Work the butter in with you fingers to make a crumbly dough.
  4. Remove 2 Tblsp of dough and place in refrigerator. Press the rest into the baking dish. Freeze until firm, about 10 minutes. 
  5. Bake crust for 15 minutes. 
  6. Spread with preserves leaving 1/2" border. 
  7. Crumble Reserved dough on top. 
  8. Bake until edges are golden brown, approx 25 minutes-watch this, mine were over done. Maybe 18-20 minutes in my oven. 
  9. Remove from oven, let cool 20 minutes, remove from pan and cut into squares.
Tips: 
-My strawberry preserves were extra chunky so I ran them through a food chopper.
-Trust your nose, if you smell it getting brown, check on it!

Have a happy day:@)

  20. I just found some jelly called Maman. It is really a quality jam that is almost as good a homemade. I want to give these a try. I love that it is a small amount. My days of cooking in a 9x13 are over. I think....
