Jam cookies

  • Makes: 25
  • Preparation time: 10 min
  • Cooking time: 15 min

You’ll need:

  • 125 g butter, at room temperature
  • 125 ml (½ c) oil
  • 125 ml (½ c) brown sugar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 30 ml (2 T) milk
  • 7 ml (1½ t) vanilla essence
  • pinch salt
  • 500 ml (2 c) flour
  • icing sugar, for rolling
  • 125 ml (½ c) jam

Do this:

  1. Preheat oven to180 °C. Line two cookie sheets with baking paper.
  2. Cream together the butter, oil and brown sugar until fluffy. Scrape down sides of bowl. Add the egg yolks, milk, vanilla and salt, and beat until well combined. Gradually add the flour, mixing until well blended.
  3. Measure about 2 teaspoons of dough for each cookie and roll into balls. Place the icing sugar in a small bowl and roll the balls of dough in the sugar to coat. Using the back of a teaspoon or your thumb, make a deep rounded hole in the top of each cookie.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove from oven. It may be necessary to create the hole once again with a spoon. Place about 1 teaspoon jam into the hole of each cookie.
  5. Bake again for 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from oven. Cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
