Split Second Cookies

Well...here is my mom's recipe for Split Second Cookies. She has been making them for as long as I can remember. When I smell them baking, it smells like Christmas. :)

(Full recipe to follow at the end)

Here are the ingredients: flour, sugar, butter, vanilla, egg, strawberry jam, and baking powder



The flour has to be sifted before it is measured and then sifted again, together with the baking powder.






Cream the butter, sugar , egg and vanilla. Add in the flour mixture and mix.




Divide the dough into 4 equal parts. I make it into a ball and then cut the ball into quarters. Be sure to work on a well floured surface.



Then, you take one of the 4 portions and press it into an oval shape, about 1/4 inch thick. Use your thumb to make an indentation in the middle and fill that with jam. Bake at 350 for 15-20 min, until golden brown.
Then, transfer to a cutting board and cut while warm. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely.






This is them on plate at a party. They have a wonderful soft texture and delicious, buttery taste. My mom got the recipe from my grandmother and they are a family favorite!

The Split Seconds were brought into this country by my mother, Karin Fellows, and she entered them into a Pillsbury Bake off contest in 1954 and won an award for them.
