'Jam in' Butter Cookies

'Jam in' Butter Cookies
Another variation for my Butter Cookies.  As long as you have a good base, you can make all sorts of yummy cookies.  These might not look as pretty but they are so tasty! Use your favourite jam, I used strawberry for a splash of red on my Christmas cookie plate.  A little drizzle of white chocolate or dark chocolate over the top is also quite fabulous. :D  Ooooh, colouring some icing green and drizzling it over top would be so cool against the red jam!  Plating that in the shape of a Christmas tree...awesome!  As always, have fun and make it your own.  

Ready for the oven.
1 cup salted butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Your favourite jam (I used strawberry).

In your mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar well.  Beat in eggs, one at a time.  Add the vanilla.  In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Add this to the butter mixture and mix well.  Using a small sized ice cream scoop, place the dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet.  Slice the scooped dough in half and shape into balls. Press your thumb into the ball to make a well in the centre of each cookie. Make sure the sides are even so that the jam doesn't escape.  Fill the hole with 1/2 tsp of jam.

Bake in a 350 degree convection oven for approximately 12 minutes.  (If you are baking three trays at a time, the trays on the lower rack may need to be rotated to the top and baked a little longer.)  

Cooling down.
