Jam Filled Butter Cookies

Jam Filled Butter Cookies

To make up for the delayed post for last week, here is an early post for this week! It features another Grand Theft Cookie-approved band: The Jam

These cookies were actually made before the last post went up. Kind of like a confusing alternate timeline like on Lost.

Original Source: AllRecipes.com (maybe – the wife doesn’t remember where she got it but her version looks identical to this one)

3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
2 egg yolks
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup fruit preserves, any flavor

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and egg yolks.

Mix in flour a little bit at a time until a soft dough forms.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Use your finger or an instrument of similar size to make a well in the center of each cookie.
(If dough is too soft, refrigerate for 15 to 20 minutes.)


Fill the hole with 1/2 teaspoon of preserves.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown on the bottom. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.

Result: Pretty good. The wife usually makes them around the holidays and does a damn good job. I have to let her make some of the cookies around here too but I wanted to try to make them once.

The Jam!
