Roll n' Jam Fill Cookie
Thursday, December 28, 2006
As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu

It seems like I just posted Eid cookie recipes. Here is my Eid-ul-Adha cookie recipe I'd like to share with you. The Roll n' Jam Fill Cookie!! It's a cookie we can be creative with, which is what I love about it. And of course it tastes good. It is also very easy to make. (edited 03/01/07: they don't taste good.. they taste beyond excellent!!)

I divided the dough in half. To one half, I added vanilla essence, rolled each ball in sesame seeds and filled the center with strawberry jam. The second half, I added maple extract, rolled each ball in brown sugar, and filled the center with apple-cinnamon jam.

I would love to hear from others who try it out. Please let us know what you rolled the cookie in and what jam, etc. you used as filling.

Be creative!

Makes 40

1 cup (8oz/16tblsp) unsalted butter
2 cups (16oz/454.4g) flour
1/4 cup (2oz/4 tblsp) sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tsp baking powder

Essence/extract of your choice
What you decided to roll your cookie in
Jam of your choice

:: Cream butter.
:: Add sugar, salt, flour, baking powder and essence of your choice.
:: Cut dough into 40 even pieces and form into balls.

:: Place on greased (or parchment covered) cookie tray.
:: Make a thumbprint in the center or each ball.
:: Fill with jam of your choice.
:: Bake at 400°F (200°C) degrees for 10 - 15 minutes.

Wa'alaykum as-salaam wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dear sister Amira,

Thank you so much for trying it out and letting me know how it went. I am very happy it was a hit with your future mother-in-law. AlhumduliLlah.

Did you roll the cookie in anything different? or use any different fillings??

Assalamu alaikum Sister,

I just came across your blog today and it was love at first with sight with your recipes : ). I immediately tried out your roll and fill jam cookies coz they looked so easy and delicious. It was very easy to make and I rolled my cookies in dessicated coconut. It looked so pretty.

However, my cookies were not firm. They just melt in the mouth and they don't taste cooked, although the outside was quite browned. Was it too soft coz of a lot of butter? I don't know how to measure butter in cups ( how do you do it please?) so therefore I converted the whole recipe into grams and made it. Maybe some miscalculation took place? Nevertheless it still is quite delicious! But I'd like to make firmer cookies. Any advice please? Sorry for the bother.

Wa'alaykum as-salaam wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dearest sister Umm Maryam,

Jazak'Allah for stopping by and leaving your wonderful comments and feedback. No worries, your questions are not a bother :)

Insha'Allah next time I hope to try rolling then in coconut. :)

Humm.. if your measurements were correct, maybe baking it instead at 350F for longer might work.

If they spread a lot and don't really hold their shape, that's usually because of extra butter.

For measuring.. one pound of butter (which is how we buy it block equals one pound) is equal to 2 cups. So for this recipe you'd need half that block. If you look on one side of the butter wrapper, it has lines indicating how much is a cup, half a cup, etc.

Insha'Allah I hope that helps.

I look forward to hearing from you, insha'Allah.
