Happy Mother's Day, y'all! I continue to be thankful for our little bundle of joy on the way...but am trying to fully indulge in the lazy, peaceful Sundays I have left :)
Sometimes during those lazy days you have a hankering for a slightly crunchy, sweet bite. These super cute, super easy and super tasty treats were my bribery to get off the couch! Wish my Mom was here in OH to indulge in one, two or three of these with me!
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking powder
1½ sticks butter (unsalted), softened
⅔ cup sugar
1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
blackberry & strawberry jam (or any jam of your choosing)
Preheat oven to 350°
Whisk the flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl. With a mixer, beat the butter, sugars and vanilla in a separate bowl until fluffy. Pour dry ingredients into the bowl and mix until combined; knead hand by dough for a minute or two to make sure it comes together.
Roll dough mixture into small balls and place on baking sheet (about ½ inch apart). With your thumb, make a small indention into each ball and fill with a little jam.
Bake about 15-20 minutes, or until edges are a golden brown. Let cool 2-3 minutes on baking sheets then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
