Austrian Jam Cookies

Some would call these thumbprint cookies. We grew up calling them Austrian Jam's.  They are a must have at our house around the Holidays.  However - these are worth putting in your mouth any time of the year especially with a spot of hot tea!

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 teas. vanilla
1 egg separated
1 1/4 cups sifted flour
2/3 cup chopped almonds or pecans
Raspberry Jam

1) Beat butter, sugar, vanilla and egg yolk in a medium sized bowl until fluffy. Stir in Flour, gather dough into a ball; Chill several hours
2) Roll level teaspoonful of dough into balls. Dip into slightly beaten egg white; roll in almonds.  Place on un-greased cookie sheets 1 inch apart.  Press an indention with finger in each; fill with 1/4 teas. jam.
3) Bake in slow oven (300 degrees) for 20 minutes, or until lightly golden.  Cool on wire racks.

Dara's Notes: I usually double this batch. Also this freezes well.
