3. Using the back of a fork, press down to gently flatten cookie slightly, leaving imprints from the prongs. Repeat this step on the other side of the cookie.
4. Bake for 8 minutes and cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring to a wire rack.
5. Once cooled, take one cookie and spread about 1 tbsp jam*. Make a sandwich with another cookie and enjoy!
1. Cook 1 cup frozen (or fresh) berries and lemon juice in a medium-size pot on medium-low heat for about 10-15 minutes.
2. Smash berries and bring to a boil for 2 minutes.
3. Take off heat and stir in chia seeds. Let cool and berries will thicken like jam.
