MAKE YOUR HOUSE/APARTMENT/LODGING SMELL REALLY GOOD AND THEN HAVE PRETTY JAM-BUTTONED COOKIES TO EAT AFTERWARDZ.
Great thanks glad we're on the same page.
Raspberry Shortbread Cookies
from the September 2011 issue of Bon Appetit
2 cups whole wheat flour (You think you can just use regular flour but you are wrong! I mean technically you're right, but whole wheat gives the cookies this full, nutty taste...just do it)
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
10 1/2 teaspoons butter, room temperature (This seems obscene, but its just a stick and a fourth)
2 large eggs
1 egg yolk
Raspberry preserves or jam
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Whisk together the dry ingredients. Add butter, and using your hands, work the mixture into a loose meal.
Beat egg and yolk together and add to the meal mixture. Stir to just combine.
Roll spoonfuls of dough into balls, flattening them slightly on a baking sheet about two inches apart. Make an indentation in each ball, and fill with a small dollop of jam.
Bake for 13 minutes, or until slightly browned.
