Swedish Jam Cookies Recipe
- ½ cup butter
- ⅓ cup white sugar
- ⅓ cup dark corn syrup
- 1 egg, separated
- 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup finely chopped walnuts
- 1 cup any flavor fruit jam
step 1: In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Stir in the corn syrup and egg yolk. Gradually stir in the flour until fully incorporated. Cover and chill for at least 1/2 hour.
step 2: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease baking sheets.
step 3: Roll dough into 1 inch balls, dip them in the egg white, then roll them in the nuts. Place cookies on the prepared cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Using your finger, make an indention in the center of each cookie.
step 4: Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Fill each indention with a small amount of jam while cookies are still warm. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheets.
