Jam Jam Cookies
3/4 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar
3/8 cup corn syrup
finely grated peel of a lemon
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
Cream shortening, sugar and syrup, add eggs and lemon peel and mix well.
In another bowl mix the dry ingredients and mix all togetheruntil it forms a ball.
Roll out the dough fairly thin and cut out rounds with a cookie cutter.
Place on pans, you can place them quite close together, they don't spread very much.
Bake in 375 oven for 8 min
When cookies are cool put a tsp of jam on one cookies and top with another one.
Yields: approx 30 jam jams.
I use homemade wild plum jelly but any jam will do.
I make these at Christmas and other special times.
These cookies freeze well, that is if they make it to the freezer..
