I work in a supermarket, have for 30 years, 2 months and 26 days. No, I am not kidding. Why do I know this you ask? Because I have worked there 30 years, 2 months and 26 days. If you ask me in the middle of my shift I can also give you hours, minutes and seconds. No one should work at a job for that long.

Anyways, Thanksgiving through Christmas and New Years kicks our butts. By Christmas Eve, most of the women I work with just want a bubble bath, a huge glass of wine and a soft quiet bed. Screw Santa.

I can't believe I just said that.

So I am catching up on baking, photos, sanity, etc. now. Tuesdays with Dorie forgive me please.

I have my cravings when it comes to sweets. Chocolate is always at the very tip top of the list. Always. Did I say always? Things without chocolate better include the good stuff: butter, caramel, nuts, cream or fruit. When I saw the title 'Buttery Jam Cookies' the word 'buttery' saved this cookie from being discarded into 'cookie recipe hell'.

Now, are these supposed to be pretty? I am not very good at pretty evidently because mine are just sort of there. Blah. They were easy enough to throw together. Maybe throw is my problem. Are you supposed to love the dough, be one with the dough?

I used a blueberry/cherry jam from Sarabeths Kitchen. Great jams if you can find them though they are pricey. In the recipe it says to add the jam to the mix. Hmm...

Okay, you know what?
These cookies sucked!
