To make up for the delayed post for last week, here is an early post for this week! It features another Grand Theft Cookie-approved band: The Jam
These cookies were actually made before the last post went up. Kind of like a confusing alternate timeline like on Lost.
Original Source: AllRecipes.com (maybe – the wife doesn’t remember where she got it but her version looks identical to this one)
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
2 egg yolks
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup fruit preserves, any flavor
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and egg yolks.
Mix in flour a little bit at a time until a soft dough forms.
Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Use your finger or an instrument of similar size to make a well in the center of each cookie.
(If dough is too soft, refrigerate for 15 to 20 minutes.)
Fill the hole with 1/2 teaspoon of preserves.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown on the bottom. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.
Result: Pretty good. The wife usually makes them around the holidays and does a damn good job. I have to let her make some of the cookies around here too but I wanted to try to make them once.
