Remember when flying was fun? When you could show up 30 minutes before your flight, check bags for free, and count on a circumspect turkey sandwich to go with your peanuts on most cross country trips? Well, those days are definitely over friends as air travel has become something akin to a root canal in terms of pain, discomfort, and impact on your wallet size. As much as I was thrilled to have made it home to Florida to celebrate my Mom's wedding, the journey home left me tired, cranky and desperate for a day spent recovering on my couch with a cup of tea and some homemade treats. This week's TWD, Buttery Jam Cookies really fit that bill. Made from ingredients I already had on hand, these soft, cakey cookies are stress-free because they are a cinch to make and ready in no time. Forget all the hustle and bustle of the yuletide rush and take a (tea) time out. And while your relaxing, check out Tuesdays With Dorie to see what my fellow bakers are cooking up this holiday season.
