Bite-Sized Delights: Irresistible Recipe

Treat yourself to these delightful bite-sized goodies! Perfect for parties, gatherings, or just a cozy night in, these little wonders are sure to please.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and diced
  • 2-3 tablespoons cold water
  • Your favorite jam or preserves (strawberry, raspberry, or apricot work great!)
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, granulated sugar, and salt. Add the cold diced butter.
  3. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, work the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Gradually add the cold water, one tablespoon at a time, mixing until the dough comes together. Be careful not to overwork the dough.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness. Using a small round cookie cutter or the mouth of a drinking glass, cut out rounds from the dough.
  6. Place half of the rounds onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them slightly apart. Spoon a small amount of jam or preserves onto the center of each round.
  7. Top each jam-covered round with another round of dough. Use a fork to gently press the edges together, sealing the filling inside.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
  9. Allow the bite-sized delights to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Once cooled, you can dust the delights with powdered sugar for a decorative touch, if desired.
  11. Serve and enjoy these irresistible bite-sized treats with your favorite hot beverage or as a sweet snack any time of the day!
