Jennifer Ryan, All I Want For Christmas is a Cowboy, 12/10/13:
This is an old Challenge Butter recipe I found in a magazine years ago. My kids request these every Christmas. 

Raspberry Slices
1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup raspberry jam

In a large bowl, combine butter, sugar, and vanilla. Beat with a mixer on medium speed until smooth. Stir in flour, then beat until dough comes together. It will appear grainy, but when smashed in your hand will stick together.
Press dough into a large ball. Divide into three sections. On a floured surface, with the palm of your hand, roll each portion into a 9 inch long rope about 1 inch thick. Place ropes about 2 inches apart on buttered 12x15 cookie sheet.
Press your thumb into dough to make 1/2 inch indentation at 1 inch intervals along each rope. Spoon 1/4 teaspoon jam into each indentation.
Bake at 350 degrees until edges are lightly browned, 12-15 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet.
Serve plain, dusted with powder sugar, or drizzle with melted white, milk, or dark chocolate (about 2 oz.). Cut each rope in between jelly.

Note: Photos show recipe tripled. I used seedless raspberry jam.
