  • 3/4 cup or 170 g butter refrigerated
  • 1/2 cup or 60 g confectioners sugar sifted
  • 2 Tablespoon water
  • 2 Tablespoons of Jam. I used strawberry
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups or 190 g sifted All Purpose / plain flour
  1. Placed sieved flour and sieved confectioners’ sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add butter in 1 cm pieces (distribute evenly over the flour)
  3. Add water and vanilla extract
  4. Mix together very well using hands until the ingredients form a dough. You should be able to have a ‘clean’ mixing bowl with no crumbs.
  5. Cover with parchment & place in the freezer for 10 minutes to firm up.
To make the cookies without a cookie cutter, take about half a tablespoon of cookie dough and roll into a ball. Take your finger and push a hole into the centre, as described above and place a drop of jam in the centre. Place cookies on the UN GREASED baking tray about 1 inch width apart.
  1. Bake in preheated oven at 350F, 180C, Gas 4 for 10 minutes or until the edges just begin to slightly brown. (see photo)
  2. Remove from the oven, cool for 5 minutes on the baking tray then transfer to cooling rack
