 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Butter or margarine;
  • -softened
  • 3/4 c Confectioner's sugar
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 1 ts Vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 c Sifted all-purpose flour
  • Currant jelly
  • Finely chopped nuts


1/2 pk (6-oz) semisweet chocolate
2 tb Butter or margarine
1 tb Corn syrup

Cookies: Heat oven to 325 degrees. Work butter in a bowl until creamy. Add
sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add egg yolk and vanilla and beat
well. Add sifted flour to butter mixture gradually and mix until smooth.
Divide dough into small balls about 3/4-inch in diameter. Place balls about
2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly with the
fingers and make a depression in each with the thumb. Bake 15 minutes, or
until lightly browned. Cool on wire cake racks. Fill depressions with
currant jelly. Cookies may be stored unfilled and the jelly added when
ready to serve. If desire, part of the dough may be shaped into cylinders
about 2 inches by 1/2 inch and baked 15 minutes. When cylinder-shaped
cookies are cool, dip one half of each cookie in the Chocolate Glaze and
roll in chopped nuts. Makes 5-6 dozen cookies.

Chocolate Glaze: Melt chocolate in a small saucepan directly over low heat
(about 175 degrees). Stir in the butter and corn syrup and mix thoroughly.
