Oatmeal Cookies With Homemade Blueberry Jam

This was my first time making these cookies and I was very pleased with the outcome! I had an overwhelming amount of blueberries that I knew I needed to make something with them so I decided on Blueberry Jam. Perfect for this time of year! I also have a craving for a sweet tooth so I made an oatmeal cookie to accompany my blueberry filling. They were the perfect sweetness without feeling sick afterwards. I had fun with shapes since all I really had were Christmas cutouts. I did half the batch cutouts and the other were thumbprints. They were super easy and a huge hit with my family!

Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup butter
¾ cups brown sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
¾ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup rolled oats
2 ½ cups flour

Directions:

  1. Beat the butter and sugar in a medium bowl, then add the egg, vanilla, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and ginger. Beat until smooth.
  2. Beat in the oats and flour. Divide dough into 2 pieces, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours.
  3. Working with one piece of dough at a time, roll out dough into a circle.
  4. For cutouts: cut out cookies and place on baking sheet. Cookies will not spread so place close together (not touching). Bake the cookies for 12 to 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
  5. While cookies are warm, add jam.
  6. For thumbprints: roll into 1 inch balls and place on cookie sheet. With your thumb, gentle press into the cookie, creating a pocket for the jam. Add the jam BEFORE cooking.
  7. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
