Butter Jam Cookies

December means a little more baking for me than usual, as it’s Christmas Time!!!

This time I am sharing an easy recipe for Buttery Jammy Cookies with you guys. These are a prefect treat to enjoy during winters. To make these mouth-watering cookies you’ll need flour, butter, sugar, jam and a little vanilla extract.

These are egg-free cookies. Also I have used whole wheat flour, you can also try these with all-purpose flour if you wish to get more fluffy cookies.

I have used strawberry jam, you can use any of your favorite like raspberry, peach, blueberry, etc.

Also try: Nankhatai, Jeera Biscuits, Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies or Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.
