Jam Cookies with Thermomix

Would you like to bake delicious jam cookies? These yummy sweet treats are great to serve with morning tea, and your children will love to have them for an afternoon snack. They also make a delicious dessert or housewarming present: these are cookies to suit any occasion!

The soft shortbread pastry is filled with a scented jam in this unique dough where butter is replaced by olive oil and yeast adds softness and thickness.

I prepared these biscuits for my little girls because I wanted to find something new for their afternoon snacks, in order to give up industrial biscuits and bars. They were a great success! Mum also tried them... none left!

Get the kids involved with this recipe: it's a creative way to spend time for them, they'll have fun making shapes and they'll love eating something that they made themselves.

This recipe was created by Maria Gabriella from Torino, the super-good cook who also created the Savoury Bomboloni recipe and the Sweet Bomboloni with Limoncello.

Maria Gabriella wrote: "I like getting creative and experimenting with traditional recipes, and Thermomix is the ideal assistant. These cookies are delicious with fig jam!"

Thermomix lets you make different cookie dough, like the Christmas Biscuits, the Canestrelli and the Lingue di Gatto (Italian buttery cookies shaped like cat's tongue).

Would you like to make the jam yourself as well ? Try the Plum Jam, the Cherry Jam and the Strawberry Jam.
