Thumbprint Cookies

These are the Jam Thumbprint cookies I made. Very easy, and they taste so good. I used rasberry and apricot jam.

Jam Thumbprint Recipe:

1 1/2 cups butter, softened
1 cup sugar
3 egg yolks
3 cups sifted flour, or more
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
strawberry or raspberry jam
Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg yolks, flour and vanilla; mix well. If dough is too soft to handle, work in little more flour. Roll dough into little balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Make a thumb print in the center of each. Fill thumbprint with your favorite jam. Bake a small first batch, and if the cookies in the first batch spreads too much, work a little more flour into the dough. Bake at 400° for 8 to 10 minutes, until light brown around edges. Makes 8-10 dozen cookies
