Thumbprint Cookies

Here is my last post from our holiday bake-fest. This was a new recipe that we tried that turned out great! I love the mix of the buttery cookie with the sweet jam. You can use all different types of jam for these for a fun variety.

I wish you all a very merry Christmas! I'll be back next week with some low-cal meals for you!

Ingredients:
2 cups sifted flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter
1/2 cup superfine sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract (or 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and 1/2 tsp almond extract)
Your preferred jam or other filling
1/2 cup sifted confectioners sugar

Directions:
Sift together flour and salt; set aside. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy; add extract(s). Slowly mix in flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until just blended. Chill dough for 1 to 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 325. Menawhile, quickly shape dough into 1 inch balls and space them 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Make a deep thumbpring in the center of each; fill with preferred jam or chocolate.

Bake for 15 minutes, or until cookies are the color of pale sand. Transfer to wire cooling racks. When cooled, dust with confectioners sugar.

Wow. You must've been baking cookies constantly for the last month! they all look amazing. Meredith participated in a cookie exchange this year (bring six dozen of your own, leave with six dozen different cookies) so we lucked out in the effort department.

@Dan Yes, we baked all day to make all these! I haven't done a cookie exchange before. 6 dozen sounds like a lot, too, but not so bad if you are just making one kind.
