Vampire Bites

Ingredients

¾ Cup Butter, Room Temperature

½ Cup White Sugar

1 Egg

¼ tsp Vanilla extract

¼ tsb Lemon extract

1 ½ Cup All purpose flour

Strawberry or Raspberry Jam for the filling

Directions

 

Beat together sugar, butter, vanilla and lemon extract until creamy.

Continue mixing on low and beat in egg until well combined.

Slowly add in your flour, ½ cup at a time until well incorporated.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate dough for 1-2 hours, until completely chilled.

Once dough is chilled, separate into 4 equal portions. Take 3 portions and return them to the refrigerator. Take one portion and roll it out onto a well floured surface, until it is 1/8 inch thick.

Using a cookie cutter, cut 2 inch sized cookies. Take half the cookies and place them on a cookies sheet lined with parchment paper.

Place a teaspoon of jam and place them in the center of each cookie. Using the remaining cookie cut outs, place them on the top of the jam. Pinch the edges closed.
