Here's what you need...
- 1 cup butter, soft
- ½ cup icing sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1-2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
- ⅓ cup raspberry jam
Make the Shortbread Cookies:
- In a large bowl, mix the butter and sugar together until soft, whisk or use an electric mix for a few minutes
- Add vanilla and salt in the bowl and beat everything together. Gradually add flour, and mix until it forms into a dough mass.
- Turn the dough into a ball, and then shape it into a flat circle (not to flat). Cover it with plastic cling wrap, and leave it to chill in the fridge for half an hour.
- Preheat the oven to 350 F, and line a baking sheet pan with parchment paper.
- Once chilled, dust a clean surface with flour, and place the dough on top. With a rolling pin, roll out the dough until it is ¼-inch thick. Use a spoon (to shape it out into a star or heart, by using the tip of the spoon to enlarge the sides of the small circular dough) or simply use a cookie-cutter of your preference to cut out the cookies. On half of the cookies, use a smaller cutter to cut shapes in the center of the cookie. Remove the smaller cookie shapes in the center and bake them as separate little shortbread cookies, or you can simply roll them together with the remaining dough.
- Place the cookies on the lined baking sheet, and let it chill in the refrigerator for a few minutes.
- Bake the cookies for 10 minutes, or until the edges begin to brown. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer onto a cooking rack to cool.
Assemble the Cookies:
- Once the cookies have been baked, add a teaspoon of raspberry jam on top of the hole (cut out piece in the cookie), but only once it has set slightly. You can either use a spoon or a piping bag to pipe the jam into the cookie holes.
- Carefully place the tops of the cookies on the jammy bottoms. Keep in mind to avoid smudging anything on top. You can fill the open centers with more jam by using a piping bag if you wish.
- Last but not least, sprinkle some Confectioner's sugar on top of the cookies.
