Finished Object Friday: Lime Shortbread Filled with Blackberry Lime Jam
Yum! I made these Monday when we had the deacon over for dinner. A hot cup of coffee and two (or three) of these, made a very nice dessert. The cookie recipe needs a little tweaking to make it more suitable for rolling out and cutting the shapes. I used this recipe from Martha Stewart for the cookies, only flattening the dough into a disc and rolling it out to use my cookie cutters.
It got soft really fast, so the dough was a pain to work with. I think I would increase the sugar in the dough and skip the dusting with powdered sugar in the future, to begin with, so you can see the shapes a little better.
These were the best examples out of the batch.
I filled them with my homemade blackberry lime jam. They tasted divine. They were a lot of work for 18 cookie sandwiches and one little cookie left over.
