Servings 10


  • 1 large baking pan
  • 1 small cookie scoop or 2 TBS measuring spoon
  • 1 pastry brush


  • 500 g all-purpose flour
  • 200 g granulated sugar
  • 2 small eggs
  • 250 g unsalted butter
  • 20 g instant yeast
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • pinch of salt
  • jam of choice


  • 1/2 stick of butter softened
  • fine sugar


  • Preheat oven to 370 °F
    Combine butter and sugar and mix until there's a smooth texture.
    Once well integrated, add eggs.
    Add milk, a little at time until combined.
    Gradually add flour, yeast and salt.
    With scooper or spoon, scoop equal pieces. Roll into a ball, gently press. Should look like a dome. Place on parchment lined baking sheet.
    Bake for 20 minutes, until golden.
    Let them cool a little before adding jam. If you add jam while cookie is too hot, it will melt the jam.
    Add about 1 tsp jam to center of bottom cookie and add the top part, gently press down.
    Butter entire cookie and roll in fine sugar.
