Jam is a thick spread made from fruit and sugar that is ideal as a spread on toast, cookie topping, yogurt mixture and pastry filling.
For drip-free results, fill the cookie centers with jam before baking, as described in the directions, or squeeze jam into thumbprint indentations after the cookies have cooled.
Feel free to try this recipe with different jams (blueberry and apricot work well). You can also add 1/2 cup nuts to the batter for extra protein and energy on long hikes.
This dessert takes only about 20 minutes to put together and can be made with various jams and summer fruits. Grapes, blueberries, apricots and plums all work well.
