Jam Filled Butter Cookies

These cookies were easy, great tasting, elegant looking, quick and inexpensive. With attributes like that you can't go wrong.

3/4 c softened butter
1/2 c. sugar
2 egg yolks
1 3/4 c. flour
dash salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
any jam
powdered sugar

Cream the butter, yolks, and sugar together. Mix in the flour a little at a time. Add the vanilla and salt. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls. If the dough is too soft chill for 15-2o minutes. Place the cookies 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet. Make a well in each cookie and fill with jam. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-14 minutes. If they don't turn golden you can broil them for 1-2 minutes to make them look perfect. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
