Holiday Marmalade BUY

Ingredients

8 ounces butter, softened

2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

½ cup granulated sugar

1 tsp vanilla

¼ tsp salt

½ tsp nutmeg

1 egg

2 jars Laura Ann’s Jams -  L.A.’s Holiday Marmalade

Powdered Sugar Glaze, recipe below

Directions

 The most Jamazing Ribbon cookies you have ever tasted!


  1.  Preheat oven to 375℉.

  1.  In a bowl of an electric mixer, fitted with a paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.  Add the egg and the vanilla and mix until egg is incorporated.  Add the salt, nutmeg and half of the flour.  Beat until well combined.

  1.  Beat in remaining flour until it forms a ball.  Divide dough into 8 portions.  Roll each portion of dough into a 9-inch long rope.

  1.  Place each log onto ungreased cookie sheet, leaving 2 inches between each.  Using the side of your finger, or the handle of a wooden spoon, make a groove down the length of each rope.

  1.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Spoon in L.A.’s Holiday Marmalade into the grooves and put back into the oven to bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until the edges being to brown.  Leave on cookie sheets for at least five minutes before carefully removing with a large spatula onto a cutting board.  Cool and then drizzle the glaze on.  Once the glaze has set, about 30 minutes, carefully slice the logs on the diagonal in 1-inch pieces (be gentle, the cookies are delicate).

Powdered Sugar Glaze

¾ cup sifted powdered sugar

¼ tsp vanilla extract

4 tsps milk


  1. In a bowl, mix powdered sugar with milk until it becomes thin enough to drizzle.  Add the vanilla extract.
