Jam filled bow tie cookies are addicting!

Jam Filled  Bow Tie  Cookies



These traditionally are made with cream cheese. Our family makes the using butter, flour and egg. They taste more like a delicate tart dough. Similar to a shortbread texture. Our bow tie cookie can be filled with anything from jelly to dates and figs and nutella! You decide what you love. I have even filled them with cinnamon, sugar and walnuts.

I can still remember
my mom making these cookies when I was a child and the taste is etched in my mind. I loved how she threw everything in a bowl and it was always the perfect recipe.

Remember just use your favorite jams and jellies!


Jam Filled  Bow Tie  Cookies


1 cup butter 
2 1/2 cups flour
1 egg
Note: If you love the traditional style dough, omit the egg above and add  one 8 ounce package of cream cheese to this recipe that is the biggest difference. 

Assorted jams and fillings, pineapple, raspberry, apricot, blueberry, nutella,  almond paste ( whatever you like)

Garnish: powdered sugar

Mix butter, flour and egg to form soft dough in a heavy mixer. This is easier to use if you refrigerate it for 20 minutes.

Flour a board. Roll dough out. Cut with fluted edge circle cookie cutter. Fill with a little bit of the jam. Fold circle toward the center and pinch to form bows.

Bake at 400 hot preheated oven until set. Around 10 to 15 minutes until slightly golden brown. 

Cool completely on wax paper or parchment paper.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
