Let the kids get in on the baking action by helping to make the indentations or spooning the fruity jam.

  • 2/3 Cup Butter (Softened)
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 Cups Unbleached Flour
  • 1/3 To 1/2 Cup Jam
  1. In large-size bowl beat butter for 30 seconds. Add sugar. Beat until combined. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla. Add flour and beat until well combined. Cover and chill 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  3. Grease cookie sheet.
  4. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 1-inch apart on prepared cookie sheet. Using your thumb, make an indentation in center of each ball.
