Recipe Review: DeBlaeij Cookies

As I shared in the flashback last Friday, these DeBlaeij Cookies are a family favorite. My friend's Mom, Cindy, made these cookies while we were in Haiti for Christmas. Cindy is a fabulous baker and I do not believe there is anything she makes that I do not like. However, most of it is not Weight Watchers friendly.

Since I joined Weight Watchers, I wait to make many of my favorite recipes until Christmas when I can share them with others. If I made them throughout the year I might gain all my weight back, because I would be eating these cookies all the time. Okay, that was a little dramatic, but very close to the truth.

I enjoy these cookies, because you put jam in the middle. There are so many different flavors of jam out there that the options are endless when it comes to making these delicious cookies. I have used blackberry, raspberry, strawberry, and apricot, each jam made the cookie taste a little bit different then the other.

For the complete recipe for DeBlaeij Cookies, click here.

Here are the ingredients for the cookies.

Mix all the ingredients together.

If the dough is sticky you can refrigerate it, so that it is easier to handle. Then roll the dough into balls and press your thumb into the center of the dough.

Fill the center with jam. Do NOT over fill it, because it will make a mess when it cooks.

While your first batch of cookies are making, go ahead and make the glaze.


Be very careful when you remove the hot cookies from the baking sheet to the cooling rack. The jam gets very hot and you can burn yourself. I tell you them from experience.

Top the cookies with glaze. Now they are ready to eat!!
