Jam Filled Butter Cookies

I make a lot of children friendly recipes lately, but for everyone who lives with children, it’s so much fun to have an activity with them. I found out that not only the kid will love this cookie you will love it too, but with some suggestion that if you make them for yourself or your company use only 175 g of sugar because we need less energy than the children. But for my nephew (who now become my little taster now, and he’s so proud of his duty), he said that it’s very delicious for children. I have some note for choosing jam; don’t use the one that’s too chunky, the smooth one will melt better in the oven.

Jam Filled Butter Cookies

Makes about 30

180 g

Unsalted butter, softened

200 g

Caster sugar



250 g

All purpose flour

½ tsp

Baking powder

¼ tsp


Jam to decorate

Preheat the oven to 180°C

Place the butter and sugar in the bowl of an electronic mixer and beat until light and creamy. Add the egg and beat well. Sift the flour, salt and baking powder together and mix into the dough.

Roll 2 tsp of the mixture into balls, or use a small scoop to measure out the cookie dough (this method will make less smooth dough but it’s easy and less messy when the children make it).

Place the dough balls on a baking sheet lined with non-stick baking paper, allowing room for the cookies to spread, and flatten slightly.

Press a finger into the middle of the dough to make an indent.

Fill the hole with jam. Bake for 12-14 minute or until golden.
