Jam Cookies


These delightful little shortbread cookie sandwiches with a spoonful of jam in the center bring back memories of my childhood, when my mother used to make them and she'd let me spread the jam on each cookie.

Jam Cookies

24 cookie sandwiches
Prep time: Cook time: Total time:


  • 1[1/2] cups butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 TB. vanilla extract
  • 3[1/2] cups all-purpose flour
  • [1/2] tsp. salt
  • 2 cups apricot jam
  • 3 TB. confectioners' sugar


Using a blender, cream together butter and sugar for about 2 minutes.

Beat in vanilla extract for about 30 seconds.

Stir in 3 cups all-purpose flour and salt, until well combined.

Transfer dough to a sheet of plastic wrap. Using the plastic wrap, form dough into disc. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Dust your work surface with some flour, and roll out discs to [1/8] inch thickness. Using a 1-inch star cookie cutter, cut out 48 stars from cookie dough. Place cookies 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes or until edges start to slightly turn golden brown.

Cook cookies on a cooling rack for about 20 minutes.

Spread 1 or 2 tablespoons apricot jam on 24 cookies, and place remaining 24 cookies on top of jam cookies to form sandwiches. Dust cookies with confectioners' sugar, and serve.

Instead of apricot jam, you can use whatever flavor of jam you like or is in season.
