Notes

The oven temperature differs from oven to oven so adjust accordingly. Always pre-heat oven before baking. you can use any type of jam. Here I have used mixed fruit jam. While kneading if you feel that the dough is little hard then you can add some more cream and knead. Roll the cookies in sugar immediately after it come s out of the oven. you can even use caster sugar for rolling.
