My grandmother bakes this recipe every year for the holidays. She uses homemade blackberry jam that she makes fresh every summer. These cookies are so delicious! —Jacquie Franklin, Hot Springs, Montana

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 cup seedless blackberry spreadable fruit

Directions

  1. Cream butter, shortening and brown sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; cover. Refrigerate until firm enough to roll, about 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion of dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-in. round cookie cutter. Place half of the circles onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Spread 1 teaspoon spreadable fruit in the center of each circle; top with remaining circles, pressing edges lightly to seal.
  3. Bake until light brown, 10-12 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
