These cute cookies will be the hit of any cookie tray. The cocoa-based buttercream frosting is piped over the filling to mimic a lattice crust.—Lorri Reinhardt, Big Bend, Wisconsin

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.

  3. For frosting, in a large bowl, cream butter until light and fluffy. Beat in the confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough milk to achieve piping consistency. Tint frosting with cocoa and food coloring. Cut a small hole in the corner of a pastry or plastic bag; fill with frosting.
  4. Spread preserves over cookies to within 1/4 in. of edges. Pipe lines across the top of each cookie, forming a lattice. Pipe a fluted edge around the tops of cookies. Yield: 5 dozen.
Blueberry Pie Cookies: Substitute blueberry jam for the cherry preserves.

"I just made these with blueberry jam... amazing! I did't have to change the recipe at all except for no salt since my butter is salted. Also, I had a lot of leftover icing, so cut the recipe to 3-4 cups of powdered sugar. I will be making these again!"

"I made these quite some time ago and truly couldn't find a thing wrong with them. I didn't add any salt since I have to cut it out at our house but other than that the only thing I did NOT do was the lattice and that was only because I am lazy! I just put a dollop of white frosting in the center, about a nickel size. The "note" here is correct too. It was wonderful with blueberry preserves as a change."
