  • 6 tbsp butter (75 g)
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar (35 g)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3/4 cup raspberry jam

  3. Bake your cookies at 375F (or 200 degrees C) for about 15 minutes.
  4. Leave them to cool and remove to a wire rack.
  5. Melt the chocolate and shortening together. Coat the bottom of each cookie with melted chocolate and leave until firm on waxed paper.
