Can I use other types of jam?

Yes, you can! I really like strawberry jam, but you can use grape, apple, apricot, or any other flavor of jam that you want! This is a great way to change up the flavor of the cookies without having the change anything else.

How do you store leftover cookies?

These cookies make perfect leftovers! You just need to be sure to store them in an airtight container and keep them in the fridge.

If you want to add the frosting later, you can do that as well. Just store the cookies in an airtight container, and then when you’re ready to eat them, add the fresh frosting.

Can I freeze this cookie recipe?

If you want to freeze these cookies for later, you can. But I do recommend that you freeze them without adding the frosting.

This way, you can unthaw the cookies and then put fresh frosting right into the middle when you’re ready to eat.
