My Nana made these cookies for all her grandchildren every time we went for a visit. They remind me so much of my childhood and all the wonderful memories I have from my Nana and Papa's home. They are delicious, and as Nana would call them "grandchildren's favorite." For more of the story and pictures, visit my blog here: http://lindscooks.blogspot.com/2011/09/nanas-jam-jams.html
Jam Jams - the recipe for a homemade version of this perennial Newfoundland favorite treat was unexpectedly popular on the website yesterday. The recipe works well as a plain soft molasses cookie too. Find it along with over 120 of our cookie photos on our cookie board.

Stuffed At the Gill's: Newfoundland Jam-Jams are molasses cookies sandwiched together with your favourite jam. When cooled the newly baked cookies are quite crisp but after over-nighting, sandwiched with jam, in an airtight container they soften up to the correct texture of a Jam-Jam. These can be very successfully made vegan by using a vegan margarine in place of the butter. #Cookies #Molasses #Newfoundland #Christmascookies
