Christmas Recipe: Imperial Cookies

These jam-filled wonders will melt in your mouth and impress your friends!  Perfect for a holiday party or to go with your afternoon tea.

The Recipe:

1 cup butter

1/2 cup sugar

2 egg  yolks

2 tsp vanilla

2 cups sifted flour

1/8 tsp salt

Raspberry jam (seedless)

Icing sugar

Water or milk

The Directions:

Mix butter and sugar until fluffy.  Add in yolks and vanilla.  Fold in flour and salt until it forms a ball.  Refrigerate the dough for one hour.  Divide into 4 sections and roll out each section separately.  Cut in small rounds (cookie cutter or a small glass) and bake at 325 for 8-10 minutes.

Allow cookies to cool completely.  Then spread jam and sandwich between two cookies.  Mix up some icing and spread on top.  And voila!  You can add a dot of jam in the middle of each one or one of those edible silver balls.
