Jam Diagonals


This is one of the easiest, most elegant and delicious desserts that takes no time at all to make. I have made these since the late 1970’s. I made this for my daughter in laws baby shower yesterday. This is my sons and daughter in laws first baby and my 3rd grandchild! I am so excited to meet my new little grandchild in a few weeks. They want to be surprised so we don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl.

Anybody can make this simple recipe and it uses items you probably already have. This was a double batch that I filled with raspberry jam and strawberry jam. They are called Jam Diagonals because they are filled with jam and you cut them diagonally. If you look close you will see I have already cut them diagonally.

I posted this recipe last year but I just updated the picture.

Here is the link to the recipe.

  1. I have been meaning to take the time to thank you for your blog. You do an excellent job of explaining the recipes and keeping it simple. I have only taken the time to make a few of your recipes because I haven’t been able to cook much the past couple of years but as soon as I get things back on track I’m gonna go back and make as many of them as I can 🙂

    I made one of your goulash recipes and the peanut butter pie – so simple and quick but yet SO YUMMY!
    Thank you so much for your blog and sharing with us! I hope one day you can do a cook book! 🙂
