Hazel Strawberry Jam Cookies

Cookies! It was quite a long time since my last baked of cookies. These were quite special, and delicious. Good to go with a cup of tea!
These were made very last minute when I was told that we are going to meet some friends for dinner. I've never bake anything for them before, so I hope they will like it. By looking at the pictures here, they may taste good ..haha! Why I said that?...because I, myself had never tried it and I dare to give it away...LOL!!

Recipe was taken from a book named "The Great Big Cookies Book" by Hilaire Walden. I didn't really follow the ingredients stated in the book, instead I've changed most of it.

190g plain flour
100g ground hazelnut
175g butter
100g sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
350g strawberry jam
1 tbsp lemon juice

- Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
- Stir in vanilla essence and add in flour and ground hazelnut.
- Mix well to form a dough. Cover with cling wrap and chill for an hour.
- Preheat oven at 170'C, line  baking sheets in  different trays.
- Divide dough into  portions, roll each piece out on floured surface to a thickness of 3mm.
- Cut the dough with pastry cutter (any desire shape) shown above.
- Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly brown and cooked. Cool them on a wire rack.

- In a saucepan, melt the jam with lemon juice until it comes to a simmer.
- Cool the jam, and spread onto the biscuits and sandwich together.

Yummy right! Try try try...:))


  1. Your cookies remind me of a particular biscuit I loved as a child. This biscuit comes in a tin of assorted biscuits and I will always rummage to find THAT one with the red jam. I have not baked cookies before and I would love to try baking this one :)

  2. Hi,

    I made mine and they taste yummy. But why they turn soft next day? Do I sandwich them when wanna eat/serve?

  3. Priscilla,
    Maybe you can try to store them in the fridge before serving. I always store all my cookies in the friidge because we can't finish them in time, and they still crispy even after 3 days.

  4. Hi ReeseKitchen,

    Does it help if I fridge them now since aldy soften? So sad all goes soft....

  5. You can try, but I think they may not as crispy as before.
    I'm sorry that I should have noted in my post to fridge the left over cookies.

  6. Hi babe,

    It's ok. Let me try n update u... =) Tks.
