cookie Week 2010- Cookie #6

So this is it, my last cookie! These turned out great and ended up being one of the most eaten at the parties I've attended so far (yes, I've already had 2 Christmas parties).


Here's what you'll need:

1 pouch Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
Butter and egg called for on cookie mix pouch
3 tablespoons Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons seedless raspberry, apricot or your favorite jam
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 to 3 teaspoons milk

Make cookie dough as directed on package, adding flour; blend. Divide dough into thirds. Shape each third into 12-inch log. Place logs 3 inches apart on 2 ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake at 375°F for 15 to 18 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Using handle of wooden spoon or finger, make depression about 1/2 inch wide and 1/4 inch deep lengthwise down center of each roll. Fill indentations on each roll with generous tablespoon jam. Cool; place on cooling rack. Cool completely.
Mix powdered sugar and just enough milk for drizzling consistency; blend. Drizzle icing over cooled logs. Cut each roll diagonally into 12 pieces.

I ended up making more then 3 logs. My cookie sheets were too small for 12 inch ones! I also alternated between apricot jam and raspberry jam.
Hope you have enjoyed cookie week! Looking back at my week I am not sure how I got all these done with 2 kids under age 3! Not easy for sure!! I am so over baking for a bit! ;)
