Orange Jam Cookie Recipe
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
8 tablespoons coconut oil or vegetable shortening, softened, not melted
1 egg or 1 egg replacer, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla extract
3/4 cup of orange jam (or other fruit jam)
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Combine all the dry ingredients into a bowl and whisk. Add the oil, egg, and vanilla. Mix to combine. The dough will be thick and stiff – you can squeeze it together with your hands to bring it all together.
Roll the dough out between two pieces of parchment paper until they are ¼ inch thick.
Cut dough into circles using a medium-sized cookie cutter, then cutting half of them with the smaller cookie cutter in the middle to create a ring. (We used 2 1/2" and 1 3/4" cutters)
Bake for 6 - 8 minutes, or until the cookies start to turn golden brown.
Cool the baked cookies completely, then layer jam (about 3/4 teaspoon per cookie) onto the larger cookie, sandwiching the ringed cookie on top of the jam.
