I am going to try to describe these to you the best I can.
They are delicious and you need these to be stuffed in your face right now.
Jam Sticks (which are really round…uh…)
1/2 cup soft shortening (half butter) 1 cup
1/4 cup brown sugar (packed) ½ cup
1 egg yolk 2 yolk
1/2 tsp vanilla 1 tsp
Sift together and stir in:
1 cup sifted Gold Medal flour 2 cup
1/4 tsp salt ½ tsp
Roll into 1″ balls. Dip in slightly beaten egg whites. Roll in finely chopped nuts (3/4 cup). Place about 1″ apart on ungreased baking sheet and press thumb into center of each. Bake until set. Cool. Place in thumbprints a bit of chopped candied fruit, sparkling jelly, or tinted confectioners’ sugar icing.
