  • 1/2 cup butter very soft but not melted
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/8 cups all purpose flour 1 cup + 2 tablespoons
  • 1/2 cup jam


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, stir butter, sugar, salt, vanilla, and flour until crumbly dough forms. Right near the end of stirring, I use the warmth of my hands to help it come together.
  • Using a small cookie scoop {2 teaspoon size} divide the dough into even mounds of dough. Roll dough to create a smooth cookie ball and press an indentation into the center using your thumb.
  • Bake 8-10 minutes or until puffed and barely golden brown on the bottom.Cool 10 minutes. Scoop 1 teaspoon of jam into the center of each cookie. Cool completely and serve.
