1 cup butter ~ softened
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 free range eggs
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp jam or jelly of your choice ( a great way to use up those little bits of jam left over)
Cream butter and sugars in large bowl. Add eggs 1 at a time beating well after each addition. Add corn syrup and vanilla and beat until smooth.
Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Add to butter mixture, mixing well.
Roll out dough on lightly floured surface. Cut out circles with a lightly floured cookie cutter (these will be the bottom of the cookie) . For the tops of the cookies, cut out circles ( hearts or stars) from half the centers. For a nice tiny hole, I use an apple corer which works really well.
Place on a parchment lined cookie sheets and bake at 350F for approx 10 min. Allow to cool on wire racks before adding a little dab of jam on the bottom of each cookie. Top with cut out center cookies and give a generous dusting of icing sugar.
Makes approx 18 jam jams. Enjoy ♥
