Eggless Jam Cookies

Welcome to the 9th day of Baking Mania. Thanks a lot for all your support. I never thought eggless bakes would become this popular. Thanks for all your comments, likes and messages. I don’t know why I didn’t post them earlier. Better late than never. For me, this baking event is a great learning process. 

Ok now coming back to the post, I think all of us are enjoying the spring break. :-) If you are planning any baking activity with kids, this would be your perfect choice. A simple cookie where in the kids can help you with creating thumb impression and fill the holes with jam. This time I am using apple sauce as an egg replacer. I took the base recipe from food network website. But I replaced the egg though and also I didn’t bake along with jam. I baked the cookies first and then filled it with hot jam.         jamcookies

Ingredients:

  • All purpose flour – 1.75 cups
  • Baking powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Salt – 1/2 tsp
  • Butter – 1.5 sticks or 3/4 cup
  • Sugar – 2/3 cup
  • Vanilla essence – 1 tsp
  • Unsweetened apple sauce – 1/4 cup
  • Any fruit jam – 1/2 cup or as required (I used kissan mixed fruit jam)
  • Other decors like sprinkles, MnMs can be used too.

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together in a bowl.
  • In another bowl, whip the butter and the sugar with a hand-held mixer until fluffy, about 5 minutes.

Notes:

  • You can use any flavored jam and sky is the limit for decoration. 
  • Adjust sugar as per your preference.
  • Apple sauce is the egg replacer here. If you can source it, replace it with yogurt and include 1/4 tsp of baking soda.
