After making Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops and Cocoa Sables, both of which were big hits, the request from the family was a cookie that wasn’t chocolate. I picked out these Buttery Jam Cookies knowing that I had jam lovers in the family. Unfortunately, they were not a big hit with the family. My son said “these are not my kind of cookie” and he hasn’t had more. My husband said “what’s in them?” The powdered ginger seems to be the offending ingredient. My husband thought crystallized ginger would have been better. I liked them but then again there aren’t many cookies I don’t like:) Since I am baking my way through two cookbooks I am moving on to other adventures instead of tinkering with this one.
