1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened

  • 1 ⅓ cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fruit spread (such as strawberry, raspberry, or apricot)
  • Powdered sugar, for coating (optional)

  • Instructions:

    1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and grease a baking sheet.

    2. In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract.

    3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix!

    4. Divide the dough in half. Stir half of the fruit spread into one half of the dough, and the remaining fruit spread into the other half.

    5. Roll out each dough portion onto a lightly floured surface until it’s about ¼ inch thick. Use cookie cutters to cut out desired shapes, or simply cut the dough into squares.

    6. Place the dough shapes onto your prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden brown.

    7. Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

    8. If desired, roll the cooled cookies in powdered sugar for an extra sweet and festive touch.
