Directions

  • Cream together butter and sugar, add egg yolks and flour.
  • Chill dough 1 hour or over night.
  • Roll dough into small balls, dip into lightly beaten egg whites, roll in nuts.
  • When on cookie sheet, press a well in the center of each ball prior to baking.
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 8 minutes, re-press wells and continue baking another 8 minutes until golden.
  • Remove from oven.
  • While cookies are still on cookie sheets, fill center with your favorite jam and remove cookies to cool on a wire rack.
  • Using different types of jams, you can make it look like a tray full of jewels.

Notes

I think these are my favorite Christmas cookies. I'm not big on chocolate, so I tend to avoid the chocolaty cookies. These are buttery and nutty filled with raspberry jam. YUM
