Raspberry Jam Filled Sugar Cookies
An easy to make Halloween themed cookie! Use a classic sugar cookie recipe filled with raspberry jam spilling out of two vampire "bite" holes is delicious and perfect for this season.

You could of course just leave them as is and not put the holes in them.  Just a classic jam filled sugar cookie.


  • 3 1/4 C flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 C Butter
  • 1 C sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 C thick sour cream
  • Seedless Raspberry Jelly
  • vanilla sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Sift the flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and baking powder
  3. In another bowl beat the butter, sugar, egg, vanilla and sour cream
  4. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet until combined
  5. Divide into 4 flat disks, wrap in wax paper and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
  6. Roll out the dough between parchment paper, thinner than normal, less than 1/4 of an inch
  7. Cut out your circles and spread out the circles just a little bit, then roll them out as evenly as you can until they are about 1/8th of an inch (a little more is okay)
  8. Dab a small amt of the jelly in the center of half the circles, then top each jelly circle with one of the plain circles.
  9. Now cut the cookies one more time to seal the two layers together
  10. Sprinkle the vanilla sugar on the top to add a sweet crunch
  11. Using a toothpick break through JUST the top layer into the jelly twice to create you teeth marks
  12. Bake 12-15 mins, until just slightly golden on the edges
  13. Let cool then add a little extra jelly "dripping" from the teeth marks
