Yield: about 5 dozen cookies


  • 1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • Seedless jelly or jam (preferably currant or raspberry)


  1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, or in a large bowl using an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Beat in the egg yolks, then the vanilla extract.
  4. Slowly beat in the flour until combined and smooth to form the dough (the dough will be a bit stiff at the end, and you may need to add the last cup of flour by hand).
  5. Form the dough into small balls and make a depression in the middle with your thumb.
  6. Spoon a teaspoon or so of jelly in the depression.
  7. Space the cookies about 2 inches apart on a baking sheet and bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
