Ingredients

  • 1/2 c
    butter-softened
  • 1/2 c
    sugar
  • 1 large
    egg
  • 1/2 tsp
    pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp

  • 1/4 tsp

  • 1/2 c

How to Make VAMPIRE COOKIES!

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg and extracts.
  2. Add flour and salt to the bowl and mix them into the butter-sugar mixture at low speed until dough is just combined. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 325F.
  4. Divide dough in half and keep the portion you are not using in the refrigerator.
  5. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface until it is about 1/8-inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut out 2-inch rounds.
  6. Place rounds on a baking sheet, put a teaspoon of jam on each of them and cover with another round of dough. Press edges down lightly, pinching the edges onto the cookie sheet. Use a toothpick and poke two small holes (like a vampire bite) in the top of each cookie.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until cookies are set.
  8. Dip a toothpick in some extra red jam and re-insert in the “bite” holes you made before baking to emphasize them, if not already red. Draw a blood trickle down from one of the bites with the jam, if desired.
  9. Makes about 2 dozen.
