Cherry Jam White Chocolate Chip Cookies

These delicious cookies are a perfect combination of chewy, buttery and sweet with a little tang, depending on the jam you use in the middle. The white chocolate melts in your mouth, the center was dense, while the outsides were just the right amount of crunch to it! My bf and I decided to get adventurous with the recipe- we ran out of brown sugar, I felt like adding some preserves on top (cherry) and we added a few ingredients- and it turned out great! Feel free to change up the recipe- any type of jam will work and you could use milk or dark chocolate chips if you’re not feeling the white chips. Recipe makes about 20 small cookies.


  • 1 1/2 cups of flour
  • 1/2 oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • white chocolate chips



Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, honey and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients and oats until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips. Spoon cookie dough one small scoop at a time onto cookie sheet. Cookies should be about 2 inches apart. Press your thumb in to which ever one you want a jam dollop on, and scoop a bit of jam in the middle of each dough ball. 

Bake for 13 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes and transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Enjoy!
