Santa's Cookie List

When flipping through my recipe file with thoughts of baking cookies for the holiday, I found a
recipe that my nursing school roommate gave me years ago. Just looking at the recipe card brought a flood of memories of special occasions and fun events that we enjoyed together while in school.  You can never have too many cookie recipes and this is a perfect one for Christmas,Valentine Day,showers or just because! I wonder if this cookie could be on Santa's list?

Raspberry Hearts 

1 pound butter (softened)
1 cup sugar
6 cups flour
Raspberry or strawberry jam

Beat butter with sugar until fluffy. Add flour to sugar and butter mixture. (dough is dry)
Roll out thin (1/2 inch). Cut out with small  heart shaped cookie cutter. Spatula onto an ungreased pan.
Bake at 400 degrees only 5-7 minutes. Cool.
Spread raspberry or strawberry jam on top of cookie and place second cookie on top.

Optional: Glaze cookies before baking with 2 egg yolks and 2  tablespoons water.

I'm thinking Santa would probably enjoy these with a glass of milk!


  1. So simple! I love simple! Sounds yummy!

  2. Sounds yummy! Baking them this weekend !

  3. Wow - I love that ornament! Is that available anywhere you know of?

    1. The milk ornament was a gift to us several years ago-I don't know where it was purchased.
