  Grated lemon peel 1 Teaspoon
  Sifted powdered sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Cream cheese 3 Ounce, softened
  All purpose flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)

Directions

In medium bowl, cream butter, cream cheese, egg yolk, vanilla and lemon peel until well blended.
Gradually mix in powdered sugar, then flour to make a stiff dough.
Cover and chill dough about 1 hour for easier handling.
When dough is chilled, shape into 30 small balls, about 1 inch in diameter.
In small bowl, beat egg white until foamy.
Dip balls, one at a time, into the egg white, allowing excess to drip back into bowl, then roll in finely chopped walnuts.
Arrange balls about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets and make a depression in the center of each with handle of knife.
Bake in preheated 325°F oven about 15 minutes or until cookies begin to brown on the bottom.
Carefully remove to wire racks and, while hot, fill each center with about 1/2 teaspoon jam.
Cool thoroughly.
