• ½ cup margarine, softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup jam of your choice (works better than jelly because it is thicker)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine margarine, sugar, salt, egg and vanilla, using an electric mixer blend until smooth. Mix in flour.

Drop by tablespoons onto greased cookie sheet. Press a thumbprint into the center of each ball, about ½-inch deep. Fill each indentation with about 1 tsp jam. Bake for 9 minutes.

Makes about two dozen.
