Cookies with Jam – Biskota Marmeladas


  • In a large enough bowl add the butter, sugar and the egg yolks.
  • Using a wooden spoon mix well to combine all ingredients.
  • Add the flour, a little bit at a time and mix until you have a soft dough.
  • Take some of the dough at a time and shape in small balls, about one inch (2.5cm) in diameter.
  • If the dough is too soft, place it in the fridge for about 15-20 minutes.
  • Place the dough ball in a non-stick baking tray, or in a regular tray covered with parchment paper.
  • Make sure that the dough balls are about 1 inch apart from each other, otherwise while they are cooking they will stick with each other.
  • With your finger or with some kind of tool of a similar size, make a pothole in the center of each ball.
  • Fill each pothole with 1/2 a tsp. of the fruit jam of your choice.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cookies have a blondish color in a preheated oven at 190 degrees Celsius.
  • Once the cookies are cooked, remove from the baking tray and place on a grill until they cool down.
  • Tasty jam cookies that are fast and easy to make and eaten even faster they are made.
