Jam Sand Cookie Pops: Love, love, love, my lovely pop!

 Baking always makes me happy, not only from their delicious flavor, haha, but there are a lot of fun, from the time that I use for deciding, making, decorating and most of all "giving".

Jam Sand Cookie Pops
I just got this book ....................... last week, and really want to try everything, hehe. I know that the real reason for me to buy it is the mold that come with a book, it's so cute "I JUST CAN'T RESISSSSSSSSSSSSSSST IT".  So I bought it as usual, haha.
It's quite a crazy reason, but I'm happy that I got it, because the book is full of cute sweets. First I want to make something that uses the silicone mold (well, I want to use it, ^^), but when my niece saw this cookie recipe she told me that she want this one (and try to grasp it from the book, haha), so I knew that I had to make it!
It's not hard to make it at all, and with a food processor you life will be easier, just put the ingredients in the bowl, step by step and you'll get a cookie dough.
The most important part is letting it cool, and cutting it. Don't rush, make sure that the dough is cool, or it will be very hard to move it around, and will lose its shape. You can use any flavor of jam that you want for me, the plain one has strawberry jam and chocolate one is orange marmalade. 
In the end I got more cookie than my niece can eat by herself, so I packed in and gave it as a gift (for the people at a bank, I didn't give them a new year gift yet).
But I didn't tell you that you have to give it away, hehe, it's not bad to keep all of the cookies, because you will have a good time enjoy it with a cup of coffee or tea, and I know that you will be happy that way too.



Note: I think the cookies are very cute and can't stop myself from making some funny photo, haha!
