Ingredient list

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 tbsp Felix lingonberry jam
  • 1+1/2 cup flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/4 tsp rosemary, chopped

Recipe instructions

Put softened butter and sugar in mixer and beat till creamy. Add Felix lingonberry jam and continue to mix until smooth.

In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and rosemary and gently whisk. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture. Dough should be a little dry but still form a ball.

Gather dough into a ball and place in plastic wrap. Flatten into a disc and chill for 20 minutes.

Roll chilled dough out on a lightly floured surface. Stamp out cookies using a 3 inch circle cutter or any other desired shape cutter.

Using a smaller cookie cutter, cut a second shape from the center of half of the cookies. Transfer all the cookies to separate parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing each 2 inches apart.

Bake cookies at 350°F for 10 minutes or until edges are slightly browned. Allow to cool on wire rack.

Once cooled, spread Felix lingonberry jam onto the whole cookies. Top with the cut-out cookie and press gently to adhere so the jam shows through. Sprinkle with confectionary sugar.
