split seconds from grandma


I copied this recipe from my dear Grandma’s recipe box when I was a teenager.

This recipe reminds me of precious times with my Grandma. But it’s also just downright tasty. Take a buttery shortbread cookie and fill it with your favorite jam or jelly. Delish. I don’t care for the storebought cookies like this – the filling tastes fake. But these? I could take care of a dozen.

After mixing and shaping the dough into a flattened log, use a knife to make an indent down the length of the log.

Bake for ~15 minutes and then devour.

And yes, I was speaking literally when I used the word “devour.”
