Easy Jelly Filled Butter Cookies Recipe

 Easy Jelly Filled Butter Cookies Recipe – This jelly-filled cookie recipe has been in my mother’s family for more years than I’ve been alive! It’s my favorite cookie; my comfort food.

Servings: 36


¾ cup butter, softened
½ cup white sugar
2 egg yolks
1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup fruit preserves, any flavor


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Beat butter, sugar, and egg yolks together in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy; gradually mix in flour until a soft dough forms. Roll dough into 1-inch balls; place balls onto ungreased cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Use your finger or an instrument of similar size to make a well in the center of each cookie; fill the hole with 1/2 teaspoon of preserves.

Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown on the bottom, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.


If dough is too soft to roll into balls, refrigerate for 15 to 20 minutes.
