cookie recipe

At Etsy Cottage Style we are posting our favorite cookie recipes . That is our cookie exchange. Mine is Thumbprint cookies. Labor intensive but well worth the effort.

Thumbprint cookies

1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup butter or margarine softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg seperated
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup finely chopped nuts
Jelly I like strawberry. Hubby likes grape

Heat oven to 350
Mix sugar,shortening,butter,vanilla and egg yolk in medium bowl. Add flour and salt until dough holds together.
Shape dough into 1 inch balls. (don't squeeze hard or cookies will be tough)Beat egg white slightly. Dip each ball into egg white. Roll in nuts. Place 1 inch apart on cookie sheet. Press thumb deeply into center of each.
Bake 10 minutes or until light brown . Immediately move from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 30 minutes. Fill thumbprints with jelly.

These are sooo yummy.
