Bea Hamburger’s Butter Cookies

Michael gave us the recipe to his grandmother’s delicious butter cookies. Thanks, Bea.

1/2 lb butter or margarine

3/4 cup confectioner’s (powdered) sugar

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg yolk

your favourite jam (we used apricot/peach)

1. In a mixer, combine the butter and confectioner’s sugar until it forms a cream.

2. Add the flour, vanilla and egg yolk. Blend well and chill.

3. Roll the dough into small balls and place onto a cookie sheet about 1 inch apart. Dip your thumb into the center to create an indent (Bea uses a thimble to avoid nail marks). Place a small amount of jelly in the indentation. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes.
