We fell in love with these simple little biscuits in Sweden. Sweet, vanilla biscuits with a dollop of jam in the middle – a scandi jammy dodger.
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1 large egg yolk
1 tablespoon good vanilla
2 1/4 cup sifted flour
1/3 cup raspberry jam (or assorted jams and jellies)
Cream butter and sugar well.
Gradually add sugar, and cream until light and fluffy.
Beat in egg yolk, vanilla and flour, blend thoroughly.
Roll into walnut-sized balls and place on greased baking sheet.
Make a nice indentation in top of each biscuit.
Put a little bit of jam into each indentation.
Bake in 350º oven for at least 15 minutes or til pale golden yellow.
Cool, then sift sugar over them.
