Thumbprint Cookies

Thumbprint Cookies
(Wooden Spoon Cookie Book)

Cookies are pictured on the plate at the bottom left:

1 c. butter
½ c. (+ 3 Tbsp. sugar)
2 large egg yolks
1 tsp. vanilla
¼ tsp. salt
2 ½ c. flour
jam (I like raspberry or strawberry)

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg yolks and vanilla. Mix in dry ingredients. Chill dough. Roll into balls. Roll in reserved sugar (optional). Make a depression in each ball with finger. Fill with jam before, or after, baking. Bake at 375 for 9-11 minutes. Makes 3 dozen.
