Christmas Cookies with Redcurrant and Blackcurrant Jelly

These festive cookies are the perfect treat to make during the holiday season. The dough is made with butter and decorated with redcurrant and blackcurrant jelly, giving it a sweet, tangy flavor. Enjoy with a cup of hot chocolate or tea!


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons redcurrant jelly
  • 6 tablespoons blackcurrant jelly


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Slowly add to the butter mixture until combined.
  4. Drop heaping teaspoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Using your thumb or the back of a spoon, make an indentation in the center of each cookie.
  5. Fill each indentation with 1/2 teaspoon of either redcurrant or blackcurrant jelly.
  6. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
