Ingredients

Cookie

2 cups
all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon
salt
1 1/3 cups
cold Land O Lakes® Butter
2/3 cup
sour cream
Water
2/3 cup
apricot, raspberry or peach all-fruit spread

Drizzle

1 cup
powdered sugar
2 to 3 tablespoons

Directions

  1. Combine flour and salt in bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add sour cream. Stir until dough forms a ball. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
  2. Heat oven to 400°F.
  3. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-third at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 1 1/2-inch round cookie cutter. Place half of circles 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Cut small circle with 3/4-inch round cookie cutter in center of remaining circles. Brush one side of donut-shaped cookies with water; place on top of circles on baking sheet moistened-side down.
  4. Spoon rounded 1/4 teaspoon fruit spread in center of each cookie. Bake 9-11 minutes or until golden brown and puffed. Cool completely.
  5. Stir together powdered sugar and enough liqueur in bowl for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cooled cookies.

Recipe Comments and Reviews

These cookies were very greasy and overly buttery. The dough itself is rather bland, as no sugar is used, so the frosting is a must. There are better recipes out there.

These turned out exactly like the picture. Puffed up to give a nice space to fill with jam.
