Jam Filled Cookie - My type of cookie :)



I love jam treats!! I love jam centres! :) So when I ate this for the first time I was madly in love with it more because it had butter too!! I love the sweet and salty combo of jam + butter! :) even if its on bread ....yummmm!!!!
I was 'hit' by fever last week and so I couldn't be active enough in the kitchen :P So the minute fever left me this was what I made! It was so relaxing! Usually I don't like cut-out cookies much because they take forever to finish with BUT this was an exception &I loved every minute of it!! :) Especially when you need to fill the cookies with jam and sandwich them! Bliss!!! :)

Jam Filled Cookie
Recipe courtsey: Southern Living Cookie Cookbook

Ingredients:

1 cup butter, softened

½ cup sifted powdered sugar

2 ½ cup all purpose flour

1 tsp vanilla extract

½ cup raspberry/strawberry/mixed fruit preserve

Method:

  • Beat butter at medium speed of an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add powdered sugar, beating until light & fluffy. Add flour and vanilla, mixing well. Shape dough into a ball.
  • Roll out the dough and cut out rounds, equal in nos. (You need 2 types: one solid round, another round with a smaller round in the centre i.e.; doughnut shaped)
  • Your browser may not support display of this image.Pierce solid cookies with a fork. Bake at 300 deg for 20 mins on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake till very lightly browned.
  • Spread jam just before serving & sandwich one solid cookie with the doughnut shaped cookie.

Try this out & get addicted!!! I have seen these sometimes on the shelves of Ann's bakery BUT I prefer mine better!! :) More buttery,fresh & definately O-So-Moreish!! I usually sandwich them with store bought Mixed Fruit Jam... love it! :)
