While clearing the fridge, I found an unopened jar of fruit jam sitting at the back of the fridge. I believed I got it for free when I purchased something some time ago, and since nobody in my family fancy jam on bread, I went online to search for some other recipes that would have a use for it. I found this gem recipe, I doubted the credibility of the recipe initially because

1) it was my virgin cookie baking

2) it only uses 5 ingredients! (You can replace the jam with any jam you like, or skip it all together to get just a nice crunchy vanilla cookie)

Ingredients
225 gram all purpose flour, sieved
175 gram butter, unsalted
115gram fine brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
Jam or any topping of your choice

Instructions

    Cream the butter and sugar till pale. Add in vanilla extract and combine.
    Add in the sieved flour and salt bit by bit, mixing well. The dough may be a little dry but it is ok.
    Rest for 30 minutes in the fridge. Then using your hands, pinch a little out to roll into a ball. Place on a baking tray that is lined with baking sheet. Take a little jam with s teaspoon and using the back of the spoon press down slightly on the ball of dough and transfer the jam to the dough.
    Repeat for all the dough.
    Preheat oven to 175 degree. Bake for 10-15 minutes or till light golden.
    Transfer to rack to cool before storing.
