(Norsk versjon: Syltetøygrotter )

Yummy cookies that melts in your mouth. And you will not believe how fast and easy they are! You’ll impress any surprise visitor by making these on the spot.

They are also perfect to bring as a sweet ending to your picnic, or put them in a fancy glass with a pretty ribbon to give as a gift.

This is a Swedish recipe; I have just added cinnamon, because even good stuff gets better with cinnamon! And I changed the raspberry jam for strawberry jam. Use whatever jam that tickles your fancy! You can’t go wrong! (And no, you do not need jam that is especially made for baking; the regular stuff you spread on your toast will do just fine.

  • 200 grams of butter, room temperature
  • 75 ml sugar
  • 1.5 teaspoon vanillasugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 450 ml flour
  • 75 ml jam
  • 24 muffin cases

Set the oven at 200 ° C.

Whisk butter and sugar until light and fluffy

Add the vanilla sugar, baking powder, ground cinnamon and flour. Continue whisking until it becomes a grainy mass. Gather the dough with your hands. Adjust if necessary with more flour if dough is too wet and with butter or water if the dough is too dry.

Roll into 24 balls and place in muffin cases, make a dimple in each ball with your thumb. Fill the dimples with jam.

Bake at 200 ° C for about 12 minutes, middle rack.

Leave to cool, and then serve!

Store in a sealed plastic bag or in a box with a lid.
