These easy homemade crowd-pleasing cookies are aptly named, 'cause put out a platter and they'll disappear in a split second. With an ooey-gooey jam-filled filling, they're the reason why everyone will gravitate to them first.

What You'll Need:
  • 3/4 cup (1 ½ sticks) butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup strawberry, raspberry or apricot jam
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
     
  2. In a bowl, blend butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla. With an electric mixer on low speed, add flour and baking powder; mix well.
     
  3. Place dough on a lightly floured board and divide it into 4 equal parts. Shape each part into a roll approximately 12 inches long and 3/4 inches thick.
     
  4. Place rolls on an ungreased cookie sheet about 4 inches apart and 2 inches from edge of the pan. Using a wooden spoon handle, make a lengthwise depression in center of each roll, about 1/4-inch to 1/3-inch deep, lengthwise. Fill  depressions with jam.
     
  5. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden. While still warm, cut diagonally into 3/4-inch slices.

    Why not try this with some steaming mugs of our Test Kitchen's favorite: S'mores Hot Cocoa!
Notes

You can use your finger or a knife handle to make the depressions in the dough if you don't have a wooden spoon.

What is the equivalent of a stick of butter? In australia we use grams and litres so it's hard to figure out quantities in American recipes. Even cups of something is hard to compute, especially butter, as it gets so messy in a cup. Can someone enlighten me please? Thanks.

One stick of butter is equal to 1/2 cup or 4 ounces or 120 mL . Here is a site that might help with the conversion. http://www.jsward.com/cooking/conversion.shtml

the other reply was for fluid ounces, but since this recipe calls for softened butter and not melted butter, grams are more appropriate. a stick of butter is 113 grams. for this recipe it is 170 grams of soft butter.

This is a cookie my mother always made and I had forgot about them till I seen on here, I made a double batch of them at work and they never even had a chance to completely cool off and they were all gone, I had to make another double batch for snack time, and they were devoured again, on the third double batch in 1 day, needless to say I got smart, I HID THEM and they made it to snack time, but they were devoured to. So I guess that means they were GOOD. Whats nice is you can use any kind of jam or jelly or even a nut filling or poppyseed which is my favorite, it so easy to be creative with these.

My family has made these for years and years. They are fantastic! Glad to see the recipe here!

I can't wait to try the "Split Second" cookies.
