These gorgeous cookies are my kids favorite. They are requesting for this almost all the time! Pretty easy to make, not fussy, and excellent as a homemade giveaway. I never failed to ask my kids to help out and they are loving the process. Sweet, lovely, and super delicious!
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
HOW TO MAKE JAM FILLED BUTTER COOKIES
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F or 190 degrees C.
Step 2: Add the butter, white sugar, and egg yolks in a medium bowl. Cream, then, mix in the flour a little at a time to form a soft dough.
Step 3: Roll the dough into an inch ball.
Step 4: If the dough is too soft place inside the fridge for at least 15 to 20 minutes.
Step 5: Transfer the balls onto ungreased cookie sheets at least 2 inches apart.
Step 6: With your finger or something similar, make a well in the center of the balls.
Step 7: Fill them with half a teaspoon of preserves.
Step 8: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 8 to 10 minutes until the bottom of the cookies is golden brown.
Step 9: Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool down before moving them onto a wire rack.
1. If you want these cookies to be covered in coconut flakes, place one beaten egg in a tub, then, in another tub, 7 ounces of sweetened and shredded coconut.
2. Dip the chilled but not finished cookies in the beaten egg first, then, into the coconut. Coat well.
3. Add the jam and place inside the preheated oven to bake for the same time as above.
