|Jam Thumbprint cookies are a great choice for office parties and picnics. They look fancy, but are a breeze to make. Guaranteed to be gobbled up in a hurry.
1 ½ cup flour
¼ teaspoon salt
2/3 cup butter
1/3 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 slightly beaten egg whites
¾ cup finely chopped walnuts
1/3 cup cherry, strawberry, or raspberry preserves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Stir together flour and salt. Beat butter for 30 seconds; add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg yolks and vanilla; beat well. Add dry ingredients to beaten mixture, beating until well blended. Cover and chill 1 hour.
Shape into 1-inch balls; roll in egg whites, then roll in finely chopped walnuts. Place 1-inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Press down centers with thumb. Bake for 15-17 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Just before serving, fill centers with preserves.
