Delicious little mouthfuls, great with tea or coffee.


  • 1 heaping cup flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • jam. preserves or marmalade


Preheat oven to 350 deg. F

Cream together sugar & butter. Add flour and mix til crumbly.

Stir together egg yolk and vanilla. Add to crumbs and mix thoroughly. Form into a ball and refrigerate until easy to handle, about 1 hr.

With floured hands shape into tiny balls, about a tsp each. Place about 1" apart on greased cookie sheet. Using thumb, gently make an indentation in the top of each cookie. Fill with jam, marmalade or preserve. I like raspberry and apricot jams or red current is pretty too.

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool thoroughly and store in airtight container.

What else? Don't expect low cal, low carb , low fat, low sodium or low anything. I'd rather eat a smaller serving of "full whatever" than sacrifice taste. I love old fashioned from scratch recipes but I like modern techniques and tricks too.
