Strawberry Jam Cookies

My daughter used the strawberry jam she made to top these pretty cookies. This is a delicious and easy recipe. Oh, she took her own picture, too.

Strawberry Jam Cookies

1 stick softened butter

1/3 cup sugar

1 egg yolk

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/3 cups flour

stawberry jam

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet or use parchment paper to line it.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar, beat in the egg yolk and vanilla. Gradually add the flour and mix until a firm dough is formed.

Shape the dough into 1 inch balls and place 2 inches apart. Make a deep indention with your thumb in the center of each cookie. Bake 7-9 minutes until firm.

Remove from the oven and place a dollop of stawberry jam in each indention. Bake 6-8 minutes longer until light, golden brown around the edges. Transfer the cookies to a rack to cool. Makes about 24 cookies.
