Jam Filled Star Butter Cookies

emperorscrumbs's picture
All these cookie recipes use powdered (or confectioners or icing) sugar rather than granulated sugar, which is the standard in American cookies. It’s common in recipes from Central Europe, but I don’t know whether it makes a difference in the way the dough handles. Powdered sugar is much more finely ground and is mixed with corn starch, but I am not sure what effect that has on the cookies. Maybe it’s time to experiment!
Ingredients
  Flour 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Powdered sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Egg 1
  Butter 22 Tablespoon
Directions

Preheat the oven to 350° F/190° C.
In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
With the paddle attachment of a stand mixer, or with your fingers, blend the butter into the dry ingredients until a smooth dough comes together.
Form the dough into a ball and gently knead it a few times. Shape it into a square and roll it into ¼” thick dough.
Cut stars with star shaped cookie cutter.
Place them on a cookie sheet lined with baking paper. In half of them (50% for geeks) make a hole in the middle – these will be the top half of the sandwich, with a window for the jam to peek out.
Bake for approximately 10 min or until edges are getting brown.
Let them cool for 5 minutes in the pan, handle carefully as they are very delicate.
When cooled, spread the bottom stars with your favorite jam and place a star with hole over them and gently twist. This way the jam gets into the hole and fills it.
Dust with powdered sugar and enjoy!
