Royal Raspberry Tea Cakes

Recipe from

Southern Living


1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup seedless raspberry preserves


Beat butter and sugar at low speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add vanilla extract, beating until blended.

Combine flour and salt in a small bowl; gradually add to butter mixture, beating just until blended after each addition.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls; place 2 inches apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Press thumb or end of a wooden spoon into each ball, forming an indentation; fill evenly with raspberry preserves.

Bake at 325° for 15 to 20 minutes or just until edges begin to brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
