Jam Jams seem to be very popular this year. Got this recipe from a fellow actor. She made them and brought them as a back stage treat one night we were performing. What a yummy treat this would make for Santa.

I usually use homemade strawberry jam when I make these cookies but raspberry or cherry works well too.

The house is very fragrant while these cookies bake.

Serve with icy cold milk.
