How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine brown sugar and butter in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Add eggs and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and baking soda; beat at low speed until well mixed.

    Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a ball; flatten slightly. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.

  4. STEP 4

    Heat oven to 350°F.

    Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness.

  6. STEP 6

    Cut 15 circles with 2-inch round cookie cutter. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Top each round with 2 teaspoons filling, spreading nearly to edges.
