Italian Jam Cookies
A tender and delicious flour and butter batter is the foundation for Con Amore’s jelly cookies. They use unsalted butter in the dough because of its smooth, uncluttered flavor. Sugar for sweetness, fresh lemon peel for brightness, and extracts of vanilla and almond for their mellowing qualities which all work together to make this a delicious cookie all by itself. They then sandwich a dollop of strawberry or apricot Italian jam between two cookies for a treat that is traditional for special events such as birthdays, social gatherings, Christmas and weddings.
