Recipe by Barry C. Parsons
A homemade version of the United Kingdom's favorite cookie with a differently delicious flavor combination of lemon and blueberry.

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Yield: 12-14 large 3 inch cookies

Ingredients
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup icing sugar (powdered sugar)
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp cold butter, cut in cubes
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp lemon extract 
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • zest of one lemon, finely minced 
  • 12-14 rounded tsp homemade or good quality blueberry jam 
Directions
  1. Sift together the flour, icing sugar and salt. Mix in the lemon zest . Set aside.
  2. Rub the butter into the dry ingredients with your fingers until it is well incorporated and the mixture becomes crumbly, like a coarse meal.
  3. Whisk together the egg yolks, lemon extract and vanilla extract.
  4. Add to the crumbly dry mixture and mix in until a soft dough forms.
  5. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for at least a half hour. Roll the dough out between two pieces of lightly floured parchment paper to about 1/8 of an inch thick.
  6. Cut out cookies using a 3 inch cutter and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  7. Cut circles or hearts or whatever shape you like out of the centers of half of the cookies.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 - 20 minutes, just until they start to brown slightly at the bottom edges but are still very pale.
  9. Remove from the oven and spoon 1 rounded teaspoon of the blueberry jam onto the middle of the bottom halves of the cookies and spread out only slightly to about 3/4 of an inch from the edge of the cookie. Carefully lay the top halves of the cookies onto the jam and press down lightly.
  10. Return to the oven for an additional 5 to 6 minutes. This will heat up the jam to a point where it will stick the two cookie halves together.
  11. Cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
  12. Store in airtight containers.
