A Favorite Cookie Recipe

I make these every Christmas, but they are not just for the holidays. My mom always made these when I was growing up. They are a type of thumbprint cookie - super easy and delicious - tender, not crispy.

I use seedless raspberry jam because Chloe likes it best, but I also do them with apricot. You could of course use any jam or jelly you like.

German Tea Cakes

1 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
2 cups flour

Cream butter and sugar. Add yolks, then flour. Form into small balls. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Make a small hole in each cake and fill with jelly. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes.
