This is one of my favorite Christmas cookie recipes. They look great and taste even better. I always get compliments on them and requests for the recipe. It's surprising how easy they are.
- Pre-heat oven to 375°.
- Mix together cookie mix, butter, egg and flour until dough forms.
- Shape dough into balls using medium cookie scoop.
- Place 2-inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
- Using thumb or handle of wooden spoon, make indentation in center of each cookie.
- Spoon about 1/4 teaspoon jam into each indentation.
- Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown.
- Cool 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
- Microwave baking chips on High 1 to 2 minutes or until chips are melted; stir until smooth. Spoon melted chips into small resealable plastic bag; cut small hole in corner of bag. Squeeze bag gently to drizzle melted chips over cookies.
I love these cookies! These are so easy to make and they are delicious. I used cherry preserves instead of raspberry jam, and I did not use the vanilla baking chips. I'm sure these would work with any flavor jam or preserves. I will most definately add this recipe to my cookie list. Thanks so much for posting it!!
This recipe wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. When I mixed the dough all up, it was dry and I had a hard time getting the dough to stick together in a ball. The finished cookie is delicious. I didn't drizzle any white chocolate because I like the way it looks without it. Thanks for posting!!!!
