Jam Diagonal Cookies

The jam diagonal cookies are among my favorites.  I am a huge fan of cookies.  Not only do I enjoy baking all these yummy, beautiful cookies, but also I enjoy eating them.  The ingredient of the glaze for these cookies is melted white chocolate.  If you prefer the original glaze, just mix 3/4 cup of icing sugar with 4 teaspoons of lemon juice.  Hope this recipe will work for you.

1/2 cup butter - softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups flour
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup jam - I use apricot
Melted white chocolate - for drizzling -optional
Icing sugar - for sprinkling

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or reusable non-adherent silicone baking  mat.
  3. In a bowl of a stand mixer, using a flat paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar until creamy.
  4. Add vanilla extract.
  5. Gradually add flour.  Mix until the dough is smooth.
  6. Divide dough into 4 parts.  Chill for 30 minutes.
  7. On a floured surface, roll each into 8" rope. 
  8. Place the dough about 2" apart on the baking sheet.
  9. Press down the center of the rope.  Spread jam in the indentation.  
  10. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  11. Let cool on the baking sheet.
  12. Drizzle melted white chocolate over jam.  
  13. Cut diagonally.  Sprinkle some icing sugar over the cookies.
