  2. Add the softened butter, egg yolk, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Mix until a dough forms.

  4. Spread cherry jam on one of the dough circles, leaving a small border around the edges.
  5. Place the other dough circle on top and press the edges to seal.
  6. Using a cookie cutter, cut out small whirls from the dough.
  7. Bake the whirls in a preheated oven at 350°F for about 12-15 minutes, or until slightly firm to the touch.
  8. Meanwhile, whip the heavy cream with powdered sugar until stiff peaks form.
  9. Once the whirls have cooled, pipe or spoon the whipped cream onto half of the whirls.
