Put the ◎ ingredients into a bowl and mix with a whisk.
Add the ☆ ingredients to Step 1. At first, use a rubber spatula to fold the dry ingredients, then switch to your hands and bring it all together.
Roll the dough out with a rolling pin until about 2-3 mm thick. Cut out the shapes (if cutting out the shapes is too difficult, you can tear off pieces with your hand).
Bake for 10 minutes in a preheated 180℃ oven. Lower the temperature to 160℃ and bake for another 5 minutes.
I also made strawberry jam cookie sandwiches.
Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to make a simple flavored cookie that used strawberry jam instead of sugar, so I came up with this recipe. You can use other flavored jams if you want. The katakuriko makes these cookies crunchy. I also used as little vegetable oil as possible. You can make these even at the last minute since the whole process only takes about 30 minutes!
Keeping the temperature at 180℃ while baking is no problem, but they will darken. The baking time will change depending on the dough and the size of the cookies. During the last 10 minutes of baking, pay attention and adjust as necessary. If the dough is difficult to handle in Step 3, chill in the refrigerator.
