Smucker's Jelly Cookies
|Title:||Smucker's Jelly Cookies|
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup Smucker's preserves (any flavor)
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla extract; beat well. Stir in flour and salt; mix well. Stir to make smooth dough. (If dough gets too hard to stir, mix with hands.) Refrigerate about 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease baking sheets.
On a lightly floured board, roll out half of the dough to a 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with a 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter. Roll out remaining dough; cut with a 2 1/2 cutter with a hole in the middle. Place on baking sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool about 30 minutes.
Spread preserves on plain cookie; place cookie with the hole on top.
Makes approximately 3 dozen cookies.
