Oatmeal Shortbread Cookies

So here is a simple recipe for some oatmeal shortbread cookies with 
warm strawberry jam. 

Recipe From: Jolene

Makes: about eight wedges

11/4 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter

( if you want to add oatmeal like I did reduce flour to 1 cup and add 
in 1/3 cup quick cooking oats after cutting in butter)
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Combine flour and sugar.  Cut in 
butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs.  Knead until smooth and 
form into a ball.

2. To make wedges, on an ungreased cookie sheet pat dough into about 
an 8 inch circle.  Cut circle into even wedges.  Leave wedges in 
circle and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until bottom starts to brown 
and center is set.  Recut circle into wedges while warm if needed.

3. Heat desired jam in microwave for about 15 seconds, drizzle over 
wedges or use as a dipping sauce.  I used strawberry but you could use 
whatever you want... I think apricot/peach would be delish!
