These tasty sweet Jelly Center Butter cookies are the perfect addition for setting the mood on a cold winter’s night while you sip your favorite hot beverage by the fire. You’ll enjoy making these little sweets because you can personalize them by using any fruit preserve you wish in the middle.
I had apple butter in my fridge (which was left over from another recipe) and lots of peach jam that I canned last summer. I was super excited to see how these would turn out. Deliciously sweet and tasty (especially with my cup of hot tea), the preserves I used were amazing in these cookies! I also made some with store bought raspberry jam to add even more variety :0)
With a cute Jelly center scalloped cookie cutter set these cookies will be a beautiful addition to your Christmas cookie collection. I was lacking said cookie cutter set, so I improvised and used a small lid, and to cut the center I used the middle of a doughnut cutter I happen to have. They turned out just right thanks to the Ultimate Butter Cookie recipe I used, and made a yummy addition to my cookie plates this year!
