I was recently asked by The J.M. Smucker Company to create some unique tips for using a new product and I wanted to share with you, when I tasted this delicious I wanted to recreate a cookie I have had in the past. When I saw Smucker’s® Fruit and Honey at WalMart, I knew I had to make these cookies. What makes Smucker’s® Fruit and Honey at WalMart unique is that the fruit is not sweetened with sugar, but it is sweetened with honey. So the flavor is rich and complex. I knew the Smucker’s® Fruit and Honey at WalMart would be perfect for my cookies.
The first time I had tried these cookies my I was at a family member's house. This part of my family is from Russia, and they were making some of their favorite cookies from their home. I have always wanted to make these cookies again. The cookies are a wonderful way to feature preserved fruit, and they look beautiful.
What makes these cookies unique is that the dough is divided, one part is refrigerated, and the other part is frozen before you make these cookies. For about 30 minutes. Then you will gently pat out the dough in a 9 by 13-inch pan. You will add the Smucker’s® Fruit and Honey to the dough, and sprinkle on the chopped almonds. The Smucker’s® Fruit and Honey comes in multiple flavors, this time I made mine with the Strawberry flavor, but I believe the Berry flavor would also be delicious.
