Welcome To JellyCookies.Com
Jelly Cookies was originally inspired by my mom, Harriet. We have a large extended family, and family occasions and holidays were often celebrated at our house. Mom developed a large selection of "go to" recipes, especially cookies, and jelly cookies are still the crowd favorite.
When I was an undergraduate at Brown University and lived in an off campus apartment and my brother and sister were moving into their own apartments, she wrote a cookbook including the recipes on this site with the title "I'm Writing a Cookbook for My Children With Love, Mom" so that we could have a taste of home wherever we were. It was contained in a three ring binder, and thus could be updated.
Within these pages you will find recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation in my family and others. We hope you enjoy preparing these foods and sharing them with your family as much as the family before you did. Thank you for visiting.
