First off, today is my 26th birthday, so I opted to make cookies to celebrate instead of the usual cake.
Second- we’re finally moving this weekend! We’ve removed popcorn ceilings from every room of the house, painted my kitchen cabinets white, put in a brand new tile back splash, there are new light fixtures in every room of the house, a new mirror in the bathroom, bought a new washing machine, dryer, couch, chair, entertainment center, coffee table, end tables… needless to say it’s been a very busy past two months and I’m sooooo anxious to get things back to normal.
So, onto the cookies! This cookie dough was a DREAM to work with. This is by far my favorite dough so far in this book for coming together and handling.
We subscribe to the Try the World food box every other month. We love it, but I constantly have odds and ends in the pantry from various countries that need to be used. I realized that these cookies would be the PERFECT opportunity to use two- a lemon curd from Bath, England and a Jabuticaba jam from Brazil.
The end result was wonderful! The lemon curd gave it a nice lemon kick that was sweetened by the jabuticaba jam. We really enjoyed these cookies and the rest went to work with my fiancee yesterday!
