Jam In The Middle


Whenever I make jam, I have to make something like this.


3/4 pound (3 sticks) butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water
1/2 cup crushed peanuts
1/2 cup crush almonds
1/2 cup raspberry jam


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cream together the butter and sugar until just combined. Add vanilla. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour and salt. On low speed, add the flour mixture to the creamed butter and sugar. Mix until the dough starts to come together. Pour on a floured board and roll together into a flat disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.

Roll the dough into 1″ balls. Dip each ball into the egg wash and then roll in crushed nuts.  Place the balls on an ungreased cookie sheet and press a light indentation into the top of each with your finger. Drop 1/4 teaspoon of jam into each indentation. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the nuts are golden brown.

I worked with this recipe.
