  • For the Cookie Dough:
  • 2 cups 2 all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup 1 unsalted butter, softened

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 granulated sugar

  • 2 large 2 egg yolks

  • 1 teaspoon 1 vanilla extract

  • 1/4 teaspoon 1/4 salt

  • For the Fruit Filling:
  • 1 cup 1 fruit preserves (apricot, raspberry, or your choice)

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 finely chopped nuts (optional)


  • For the Cookie Dough:
  • In a mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg yolks, vanilla extract, and salt. Mix until well combined.
  • Gradually add the flour, mixing until the dough comes together. If using nuts, fold them into the dough.
  • Divide the dough into two equal portions, shape them into disks, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • For the Fruit Filling:
  • In a separate bowl, combine the fruit preserves and finely chopped nuts (if using). Mix well.
  • To Assemble and Bake:
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out one portion of the chilled dough to about 1/8 inch thickness.
  • Use a round cookie cutter or a glass to cut out circles from the dough.
  • Place a small spoonful of the fruit filling in the center of each circle.
  • Fold the circles in half to create a half-moon shape and seal the edges by pressing them together with a fork.
  • Place the filled cookies on the prepared baking sheets and bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden.
  • Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Repeat the process with the second portion of dough and any remaining filling.
  • Once the cookies are completely cool, savor the nostalgic delights of Grandma’s Polish Cookies. Enjoy!
