TWD - Spiced Pumpkin Jammers



For Tuesday with Dorie this week, I made Spiced Pumpkin Jammers.  These are a spiced dough, topped with a mixture of mashed pumpkin and cream cheese, then topped with a layer of streusel laced with pumpkin seeds.

These are not cookies that you make one night after work.  These cookies demand a lazy afternoon at home, as there are numerous steps involved, with waiting time in between while you chill the dough and chill the streusel, rolling of a sticky dough, and fiddly toppings arranged in a muffin tin. I got 48 cookies out of the recipe - you can understand why I was over them by the time I finished making them.

Undoubtedly, the finished result is delicious.  However, these cookies are very fiddly and time consuming to make, which makes it unlikely that they will be popping up very often at my place.

To see what everyone else made this week and what they thought of it, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.

Thanks, they look good but I'll pass on the recipe, definitely a bit much for 48 cookies. She has lots of other great recipes I'll try first from her cookbook. Thanks for your review!!!

They sounds delicious but yes a bit too much work unless you have a lot of time and energy - I have not heard of "jammers" before and was surprised there is no jam in these

I have to be in the right mood to do things like this which is usually when I have a lot of time. They look unlike any other cookie I've tried!

Ha, ha, we had the exact same experience. Too much work.

yes— fiddly but delicious! i scaled the recipe way down to only make a dozen so i didn’t have to fiddle too much. :)
