Russian Butter Cookies With Jam
I was introduced to these Russian butter cookies when our guests brought them over. I thought they were bought cookies since they were so crunchy and appealing.
sticks unsalted butter
powdered sugar and more for dusting
of granulated sugar
Cream the butter, margarine and sugars. Add the eggs, sour cream, mayo, vanilla extract, salt and mix over medium speed until combined.
Dissolve the lemon juice with soda and add to the creamed mixture.
Add 4 cups of flour and mix over low-speed until flour is well incorporated. Batter will be slightly tacky, yet creamy.
Place some batter into a piping bag and with a star tip, spritz out the batter into flowers, swirling and over lapping to form a flower shape.
Using a smaller tip, squeeze out some jam in the center of each flower, slightly pressing down into each flower.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 25-30 min. Or until medium brown. Dust with powdered sugar once cooled and serve.
