  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cups chopped almonds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheets.

In a medium bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add vanilla extract and egg yolk, mixing until fluffy. Stir in flour and chopped almonds.

Measure out dough by the teaspoonful and roll into balls. Make an indentation in each cookie with your thumb, then fill with jam using a teaspoon or pastry bag.
