Strawberry Jam Cookies


1) Flour : 1 cup
2) Powdered Sugar: 1/4 cup (keep it on the less sweeter side)
3) Egg yolk: 1
4) Margarine/butter: 2 tablespoon 
5) Milk: as required
6) Vanilla essence: 2-3 drops
7) Strawberry Jam or any other jam of your choice
I have not used baking powder !


1) In a bowl take the sugar, margarine, egg yolk and vanilla essence and mix them together with a blender. Use a spoon if you want.
2) To it add the flour and knead it adding very small amounts of milk each time to get a dough softer than we usually make for rotis/parathas.
3) Refrigerate the dough for an hour or two.
4) Take out and roll in into a thin sheet (say less than half a cm thick).
5) Use a cookie cutter to cut out your desired shapes for the base and top as shown in the pics below. 
6) Preheat the oven to ~ 160 deg C. Now put the tray lined with cookies into the oven and bake for about 15mins (or till the tops of the cookies turn golden brown).
7) Remove from the oven and cool on the wire mesh.
8) Dust some powdered sugar on the top cookies.
9) Take the base cookies and slather some jam on it like you do on a bread and then place the top cookie to make a sandwich. Fill in more jam if you want.
10) Final product looks somewhat like this.

 Enjoy !!!!!
