  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
  2. Divide dough into four equal portions; shape each into a 12-in. x 3/4-in. log. Place 4 in. apart on two greased baking sheets. Make a 1/2-in. depression down center of logs; fill with jam.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 2 minutes; cut diagonally into 3/4-in. slices. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.

So smart! I never would have thought to do this - it's basically a "thumbprint" cookie but with much less rolling involved. You could roll the logs in nuts...however you do "thumbprint." But ...

These are an easy variation of a thumbprint cookie. Their color and shape make them a nice addition to a Christmas cookie tray and they taste delicious. I found the dough every easy to handle ...

This is another cookie that I have made for several years. I try not to make them too often or my waistline would suffer. I don't know what the last reviewer did differently, maybe not enough fl...

Mine turned out flat but that didn't stop us from devouring them. Great shortbread-type flavor.

The recipe was quick, and easy, and the resulting cookie has good texture and flavor. I wish that I had made thumbprint cookies instead of the log style, just so I had a more uniform look.

Super Easy, Very Tasty, especially while still slightly warm. I would not change a thing.
