mangia mondays 80: butter tea cookies

howdy, folks!
welcome to

with my favorite lisa...

we would really appreciate the help!
we know chances of winning are slim,
but how awesome would it be!?
{and you've got to admit,
that is a winning face! :) }

how 'bout we share some food?
this week i'm sharing
butter tea cookies

12 oz butter, softened
6 oz granulated sugar
3 oz powdered sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 pound, 1 oz cake flour
jam of your choice {i used raspberry}

1. preheat oven to 350 f. & line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. 

2. cream together the butter & sugars until fluffy. add the eggs & vanilla & mix well. add the flour & just mix to combine.

3. place the cookie dough into a piping bag fitted with a large star tip {one of those super big guys... unless you want super tiny, itty-bitty cookies!} & pipe the cookies onto the sheet pan. they don't really spread, so you can place them about an inch apart.
**tip: it helps if you secure the parchment paper to the sheet tray by placing a little dollop of cookie dough in each corner & sticking the parchment to it! :) **

4. using a small tip in a piping bag filled with jam {or just a ziploc baggie with a small hole cut in the corner!}, pipe a smidge of jam onto the top of each cookie.

4. bake 8-10 minutes or until slightly golden.

these cookies are seriously addicting.
they're not too sweet...
ugh! i wish i had one {or a dozen!} right now!
