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.
