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.

How To Make
Cream together sugar, butter, egg, add molasses,hot water and vanilla. Beat well
Mix dry ingredients-salt, soda, ginger, cloves,and flour and add to wet ingredients. Mix well. Will form a soft dough.
Divide dough into three balls and wrap and chill for 1 hour. Once chilled-Roll dough in small balls.
Place cookie balls on lined cookie sheet 1 inch apart. Flatten the ball with the bottom of a glass into a 1 inch circle.
Bake 8-10 min in a 350° oven
Remove from oven and immediately remove from cookiw sheet.
Cool slightly on a wire rack.
While still warm take two cookies, spread one with jam and stick together to make a sandwich cookie.
