Snowflake Tea Cookies

A traditional English tea just isn't complete without crisp buttery cookies. And the great thing about these is that you can easily change the flavor each time by using a different flavored jam. Of course, with each different flavor we get a whole new treat.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 1/2 cup (3 sticks) butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup jam or preserves
  • Confectioners' sugar for sprinkling
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, with an electric beater on medium speed, beat the butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, and salt until creamy. Gradually add the flour, beating until well mixed. Cover and chill for 1 hour. 
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. 
  3. Separate the dough into four pieces then roll out each piece on a lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Using a cookie cutter, cut into 2-inch circles. Using a plastic drinking straw, randomly cut out circles of dough from half of the cookies. 
  4. Place on ungreased baking sheets and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until light golden. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely. 
  5. Spread the jam evenly over the solid cookies. Sprinkle the remaining cookies with confectioners' sugar. Assemble the tea cookies by placing the cookies with the holes over the jam-topped cookies. Serve, or store in an airtight container until ready to serve.

Any flavor of jam can be used, but I like to use an assortment to create different colors peeking through the holes in the cookies.
