Yippee!  It’s the weekend so I decided to treat my guys to a little something sweet.  A couple of weeks ago I made homemade strawberry jam and still had a little in the fridge.  I started thinking of all the different ways I could use it and settled on cookies.  Most of us think of jam cookies around Christmas time, but they are so stinking good, I just had to make a batch.  I added a little twist with the lemon glaze and WOW, what a great combination of flavor!  These cookies are buttery, light and go quickly so you better make a double batch…www.asoutherm-soul.blogspot.com
