Raspberry Ribbons

My sister Lindsay introduced me to these and they are divine! Made these today for my friends and family and they were not disappointed.

Raspberry Ribbons
Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
Yield: About 5 dozen small cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup raspberry jam

GLAZE:

  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons evaporated milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
  • Divide dough into four portions; shape each into a 10-in. x 2-1/2-in. log. Place 4 in. apart on greased or foil-lined baking sheets. Make a 1/2-in. depression down the center of each log. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes.
  • Fill depressions with jam. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until lightly browned. Cool for 2 minutes. Remove to a cutting board; cut into 3/4-in. slices. Place on wire racks.
  • In a small bowl, combine glaze ingredients. Drizzle over warm cookies. Cool completely.
