My little jelly cookies, named after the little bear who loved orange marmalade! These buttery little thumb print cookies are such wonderful pieces of joy and gladness, I can hardly express it. Try this, imagine a melt in your mouth cookie, with a satisfying crunch, that also reminds you of presents and Christmas? Can you do that? I didn't think so.
You will need:
1 C Butter
1 C Powdered sugar
6 Egg yolks
1/4 Tsp Salt
Juice and Rind of Half an Orange
3 C sifted flour
Cream the butter till it is light. Add the powdered sugar gradually, re-creaming well after every addition. Add the egg yolks on at a time, the salt and the orange juice/rind. Gradually add the flour and knead until thoroughly blended. Roll the dough into balls about the circumference of quarters and press your thumb into the dough till you have a small indentation and place an almond in each indent. Bake at 350F for about 12-15 mins, or till golden brown. dab a generous amount of jelly on each cookie. Enjoy!
