Why I Love This Recipe

I think these are my favorite Christmas cookies. I'm not big on chocolate, so I tend to avoid the chocolaty cookies. These are buttery and nutty filled with raspberry jam. YUM

Ingredients You'll Need

1 C butter
1/2 C brown sugar
2 eggs (separated)
2 C flour
1 1/2 C chopped nuts
your favorite jam (my favorite is raspberry)


Cream together butter and sugar, add egg yolks and flour.

Chill dough 1 hour or over night.

Roll dough into small balls, dip into lightly beaten egg whites, roll in nuts.

When on cookie sheet, press a well in the center of each ball prior to baking.

Bake at 325 degrees for 8 minutes, re-press wells and continue baking another 8 minutes until golden.

Remove from oven.

While cookies are still on cookie sheets, fill center with your favorite jam and remove cookies to cool on a wire rack.

Using different types of jams, you can make it look like a tray full of jewels.
