admin's picture
Ingredients
  All purpose flour 2 1⁄4 Cup (36 tbs), sifted
  Butter/Margarine 1 Cup (16 tbs) (2 Sticks)
  Firmly packed brown sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Eggs 2 , separated
  Vanilla 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Walnuts 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs), finely chopped
  Raspberry preserves/Strawberry preserves 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
Directions

1. Sift flour onto wax paper.
2. Beat butter or margarine with brown sugar in a medium-size bowl until fluffy and light; beat in egg yolks and vanilla. Stir in flour, one half at a time, blending well to make a stiff dough.
3. Beat egg whites in a pie plate until foamy; sprinkle walnuts on wax paper.
4. Roll dough, 1 teaspoonful at a time, into balls, between palms of hands; roll each in egg white, then into walnuts to coat all over. Place, 2 inches apart, on large cooky sheets. Press down in center of each cooky with fingertip, or thimble, to make a little hollow.
5. Bake in a moderate oven (350°) 12 minutes, or until firm and lightly golden. Remove from cooky sheets to wire racks; cool completely. Spoon preserves into each hollow.
