Mint Jelly Cookies

mintjelly.JPGThese are my all time favorite cookies for Christmas time. You may know them as thumb print cookies. I haven’t had the time yet to make them, and will finally be making them today. The recipe is from my great grandmother- my mother’s dad’s mother. Yum!

1/2 lb. butter

1/2 C. sugar

3 egg yolks

2 1/4 C. flour

1 drop vanilla

dash salt

Combine all ingredients except flour and mix well. Add flour and mix. Form dough into small balls and using your finger or a wooden spoon handle dipped in water make a well. Add mint green apple jelly (or any red jelly) to fill well to 3/4 full. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. They don’t brown, but will look firm and dry when done.
