Jammie Dodgers

  • 2 cups + 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup plus 2 tbsp cold butter cut in cubes
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg plus one egg yolk
  • 12 teaspoons of blackberry jam

Preheat oven to 350.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Whisk together the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla, then add to the dry mixture and mix until a soft dough forms.

Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 15-30 minutes.

Roll the dough out on a lightly floured counter, and cut into circles. Using a small cookie cutter (or an apple corer) cut a small shape out of the center of half of the cookies.

Bake 12-15 minutes, or until very lightly browned on the bottom. Let cool slightly, then spoon about 1 teaspoon of jam onto the bottom halves of the cookies. Top with the other half, and put back into the oven for 5 minutes to set the jam. Let cool 15-20 minutes before removing from the pan.
