Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with Reynolds(R) Parchment Paper.
  2. Beat together butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes, stopping once or twice to scrape down the sides of bowl with a rubber spatula. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla extract. Reduce mixer speed and add flour and salt and mix until just incorporated.
  3. Form dough into 1-inch balls and arrange on prepared baking sheet. Using your thumb, flatten balls slightly to make an indentation in the center of each cookie. Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes or until bottoms are just golden.
  4. Remove baking sheet from oven. Fill each indentation with a heaping 1/2 teaspoon of jam. Bake for an additional 5 to 6 minutes, or until the edges of cookies are lightly golden. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool.

They were delicious and would have received a 5 star. Unfortunately, the bake time is a bit aggressive. I burned the first batch then decided to cut times in half. 5 minutes for first bake then...

Be careful. At 450° it’s easy to burn the bottoms especially if your pan is dark! I had to throw out half of mine and the other half were fine as it was a light pan

I also lowered the temp to 375. 400 seemed a bit hot to me. I prefilled the cookies before putting them in the oven and a lot of the jam melted out! Maybe filling them halfway through would work...

Easy and really good. I also adjusted the temperature and prefilled. I egg washed with egg whites to keep together before filling..

Just made these today. I followed the advice of other readers and filled with Jam from the beginning. I baked at 350 degrees since that was the temp I was using for other cookies. Otherwise, ...

I, too, lowered the temp to 375. I might try piping the jam into the fingerprints next time. I think I may have overfilled. They came out messy but very yummy!! Def will make again :)

Super easy and so most and buttery. Love trying different preserves.

These were easy to make and absolutely delicious. Cooked at 375 versus 450. Otherwise no changes. Great recipe to make with kids as the dough is forgiving and not too sticky. We will make th...

This recipe is delicious just the way it is. I love this recipe

These cookies are fantastic and are just what I was looking for! I do; however, agree with the other reviewers that the temperature was too hot. I baked mine at 350 degrees for 9 minutes, then...
