Jam Cookies Sandwich

Tuesday, August 25, 2009



I remember eating jam cookies when i was a little girl, and it is filled with pineapple jam and very yummy. As it is packaged in a clear plastic bag with no logo or brand and sold in places such as the “little India shop” or newspaper stand, the pricing for it is quite cheap.

Grandma used to buy a few back for us whenever she came across them when she was living with us. However, a few years ago, because of her old age, she has moved to my aunt’s house to be cared for by the hired maid. I missed her as well as those cookies.

Nowadays, i will still buy them whenever i see them, but they seem to have become less popular and i can hardly find them anywhere. Luckily, by chance, i found that one of my friends has a cookie recipe which is similar  and she gladly share it with me.

Wasting no time, i immediately try the recipe one fine afternoon, and the result is satisfying. They may not have the exact flavour, but they are delicious in their own right.
