Christmas Jam-Filled Cookies

Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 jar of Morella Grove’s cranberry cherry jam,
  • Confectioners' sugar, for garnish
  • Gather the ingredients. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar with a hand mixer until light and foamy, about 5 minutes.
  • Melt the butter and let cool slightly. When cooled to room temperature, add it slowly to the egg-sugar mixture with the vanilla, mixing constantly.
  • Whisk together flour and baking powder; slowly add it to the egg mixture to create a firm dough.
  • Roll out the dough to 1/8-inch thick on parchment-lined baking pans and cut with themed cookie cutters (Christmas, star or round shape).
  • Cut out a hole in the centre of half of the cookies and remove scraps. Re-roll scraps and repeat.
  • Bake about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely.
  • Sprinkle the cookies that have holes in the middle with confectioners' sugar. Spread cookies without holes with our jam. Press together jam-filled cookie with holed-out cookies to form a sandwich.
  • Serve and enjoy!
