It's raspberry jam, strained to get rid of the seeds, and then cooked until it boils.
Thanks for your response BakingIrene, I appreciate it. What is the purpose of cooking the jam till it boils?
Jam is normally cooked to a specific sugar level for spreading onto bread etc.
Boiling the jam makes it set a little harder which is useful for filling cookies and coating fruitcakes.
great I will try that, thanks alot
Or just use a store bought jam (raspberry and apricot are traditional) straight from the jar. Just a little smeared on one cookie and sandwich them together.
I was referring to store bought jam. It seems to have more "glop" than homemade jam, and it sure gets a lot better after it's been boiled for a minute.
Does anyone have a really good recipe for these Italian Butter Cookies? Thanks.
ADoes anyone have a recipe for these cookie? I would love to make some for my Christmas party
