Strawberry Jam Cookies

I came across this recipe when I was browsing thru some cooking blogs. I always loved jam cookies, esp pineapple jam. So why strawberry? Oh, cos I recently bought a tub of strawberry filling from RG's class. And I didn't really like it in between my cakes so I tot I put it to good use rather than wasting it, leaving it to expire in the fridge.

I found the recipe quite straight-forward and simple. But 1 thing I don't really like was, it is very sticky. I added about 3-4 tbsp of cornflour to the dough as I was rolling them out. After adding the cornflour, it is easier to roll and cut. I cut them into hearts, then some with a small little hole to 'expose' the filling.

The smell of the cookies baking is very fragrant. I tasted the cookies on its own, it is very fragrant, a bit sweet for me. It will be good on its own to go with a cup of coffee or tea. It compliments the strawberry filling very well. But I think I roll the cookies slightly too thin and I would do it again, rolling it slightly thicker.
