Biscuits with apricot and strawberry jam

This is not a new recipe. The cookie recipe I have posted before in “Xmas treats from Hungary“. Clearly, these treats are not only good for Xmas but year round! This time I used cookie cutter and stencil sets to let the jam shine through. Both the apricot jam and the strawberry jam were home but you can, of course, use any kind of jelly you like from the grocery store.  Here’s the recipe once more.

Recipe

Ingredients

  • 5 cups all-purpose or whole wheat flour
  • 1 pound salted butter, softened
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup jam of your choice
  • confectioner’s sugar for dusting

How to make: Use a mixer to beat the butter with the cream cheese at medium speed. Add the flour, one cup at a time. Shape the dough into a ball, wrap it with cling film and let it rest in the refrigerator for an hour. Sprinkle the surface you will be using to roll the dough with some confectioner’s sugar. Roll the dough and cut the cookies. Place the cookies on a baking sheet and cook them at a pre-heated oven at 375F/190C for about 10 minutes or until lightly golden. Let them cool off. Put about a teaspoon of jam in the center of one cookie. Place a cookie with an opening on top and squeeze gently to “glue” them.  Dust plenty of confectioner’s sugar on top (or not) and serve!
