Strawberry Guava Jelly Cookies

INTRODUCTION

Delicious cookies for the kid at heart. Crumbly when hot. Store in an airtight container after they have cooled.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup butter, softened

2/3 cup cane sugar

2 cups pastry or all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon of almond extract, or vanilla extract

1/2 cup strawberry guava jelly

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 350 Farenheit

STEP 2

Cream together the butter and sugar using a fork, until mixture is smooth. Mix in the extract of almond or vanilla, then slowly add in the flour.

STEP 3

Roll dough into roughly 1″ balls and place onto ungreased cookie sheet. Use your thumb to make a well in the cookie. Be sure the hole doesn’t go to the bottom of the cookie, and smooth out the edges if they crack when creating the well.

STEP 4

Bake cookies for 6 minutes. Then, remove from oven and place jelly into the thumbprint holes. If they have filled in, use a spoon to press the hole back down. Do not overfill with jelly or it will spill out onto baking sheet. Bake for another 3 minutes, or until cookies are done. At the very first sign of any brown be sure to remove them from the oven. Use a spatula to delicately remove them from the baking sheet, and place them onto a cooling rack or plate.
