This cookie dough base also makes the Pink Marble Sugar Cookies and Strawberry Heart cookies from my Valentine’s Day cookie box. If you want, you can divide the dough into three to have small batches of all those cookies.


  • 150 g unsalted butter (softened)

  • 120 g powdered sugar + extra for sprinkling

  • Pinch of salt

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 egg

  • 300 g all-purpose flour

  • 50 g almond flour (If unavailable, you can use more all-purpose flour)

  • Jam of your choice


  • Preheat the oven to 170°C/338°F.
  • In a bowl, mix the softened butter, sugar, and salt.
  • Add and stir in the vanilla, egg, and flours until fully incorporated.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic and let it rest in the fridge for at least an hour.
  • Dust a clean surface with flour, roll out the cookie dough, and use your cookie cutter (you can also refrigerate the rolled-out dough for 20 minutes to make it easier to handle).
  • Place the cookies on a baking sheet with parchment/wax paper and bake for 18 minutes at 170°C/338°F or until the bottoms are golden.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the cookies cool completely.
  • Spread jam on cookies without holes and press them together with holed-out cookies to form a sandwich.
  • Sprinkle them with powdered sugar.
  • Enjoy these easy and delicious Cookies!
