These are so tasty. The dough isn't very sweet so the jam is a nice compliment. We had fun with lingonberry jam, strawberry preserves and cinnamon chips! Pam
1 cup Smart Balance or butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cup hard white wheat flour OR 2 cups wheat & 1 cup ground oatmeal
3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
3/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets.
Separate egg, reserving egg white. Cream butter or margarine, sugar, and egg yolk.
Add vanilla, flour and salt, mixing well. Set dough in freezer for 10 mins.
Shape dough into balls. Roll in egg white, then walnuts. Place on cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8 minutes.
Remove cookies from oven. With thumb, dent each cookie. Put jelly or preserves in each thumbprint. Bake for another 9-10 minutes. YUM!
