Easy Jam Recipes – Bit-Size Jam Swirls

With canning season on full swing I thought it would be nice to share some fun recipes with you on was to use the jam you have canned.  Sometimes the same old boring PB&J, on top of rolls, pancakes, etc, just isn’t enough to enjoy the sweet flavor of all your hard work.  This will be a series of recipes that you can count on coming from us.  I found a great  book  at D.I. called “The Jam Journal” that I will be taking the recipes from.  Yummy recipes that will entice your family to the table.

We will put them on our recipes cards and also just plain on here, in case you would prefer to have them plain.

Bite-Size Jam Swirls

3 cups all-purpose flour

Dash salt

1  8 oz. cream cheese

1 cup butter

1/2 cup jam of choice

1 cup chopped pecans

coarse sugar

In large mixing bowl, combine flour and salt using pastry blender, cut in cream cheese and butter until fine crumbs.  Form a ball, knead until smooth, divide in half, and wrap in plastic wrap.  Refrigerate (chill) one hour.  When dough is chilled, roll each half into rectangles.  Spread with jam and nuts, fold into thirds, roll, then slice each roll into 1/2 inch pieces.  Sprinkle with course sugar and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.  Bakes about 2 1/2 dozen.
