I didn’t do much baking this past week. Sometimes I just can’t decide what I want to make (or eat). Finally, I made these cookies since I really wanted something sweet. I couldn’t come up with a better name than “simple sandwich cookies” because that’s just what they are – quite plain but still tasty, at least for me. I had a small jar of marmalade from our neighbor which worked perfectly here.

Remember how I told you that it’s getting warmer here? Scratch that. It’s been raining for two days pretty much non-stop and it’s cold. I want my warm weather back. It’s so gloomy and unpleasant outside, it puts me in a bad mood. Even making some chocolate chunk cookies didn’t help much.

I made these cookies several days ago and finally here they are on the blog. I’ve made them before, however, this time I decided to make a small change. Up until now I’ve been using Turkish delight for the filling, but this time I decided to make them with blueberry jam. I have to say that I liked them more this way.

I have a really old-fashioned recipe for you. It’s from my mom’s notebook with recipes. These cookies pleasantly surprised me. I had my doubts, but they turned out much better than I expected. In fact, I ate pretty much all of them by myself. Just proves how good they are.

The best part? They are super easy to make.
