For Vanilla Butter Cookies
340g Butter, soften
185g Sugar
Vanilla Beans ½ pod, scraped
1 Egg, whisk
450g all purpose flour (more for dusting), sifted
½  teaspoon salt

Rose Raspberry Jam


  1. Make cookies. In a large bowl combine softened butter and sugar. Using a hand mixer, cream them until fluffy.
  2. Add whisked egg in batches. Mix well each time.
  3. Add sifted flour and salt to the butter mixture. Using a spatula, mix until just combined.
  4. Shape the dough into a disk, wrap the dough with plastic. Rest the dough for at least 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 325˚F
  6. Roll out the dough to ¼ inch thick. Using 2 1/2 round cookie cutter, cut out the dough. Using 1 ½ inch round mold (I used the back of a piping tip), cut a hole in the middle. Place the cookies on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, and bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool to room temperature.
  7. Assemble cookies. Spread the rose raspberry jam on the cookies without hole. Sprinkle confectioners’ sugar over the cookies with holes. Gently press the cut out cookie on top of the jam.
  8. Enjoy!
