This cookie recipe has been passed down through the women in my family. They are called Minnesota Cookies and they are short bread cookies with jam filling. Makes approx. 50 cookies.
You will need a cookie press to give your cookies the decorated finish!
Step 1: Make Dough
1 cup of butter (2 sticks)
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups of sugar
3 cups of flour
jelly or jam (flavor of choice)
non-food materials: cookie press - use star attachment
Mix butter, eggs, sugar, and vanilla together. Once smooth add in flour 1/2 a cup at a time.
When all the ingredients are mixed let the dough sit out for 15 minutes. In my experience this makes the dough firmer and the cookies chewier.
