   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2   lb           Butter
    1       c            Sugar
    2 1/2   c            Flour, all-purpose
    1                    Egg yolk
    4       oz           Cream cheese
                         Raspberry jam
 
   Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Cream together the butter and sugar.  Add
   the flour and egg yolk and mix well. Add the cream cheese and mix well.
   
   Roll into balls about 5/8 inch diameter.  Place them on an ungreased cookie
   sheet (the cookies don't grow when baked, so they can be somewhat close
   together).  Then press your thumb into each to flatten it and make an
   indentation to hold some jam.  Fill it with jam.  Bake at 350 degrees F for
   15 to 20 minutes.
   
   You can use any flavor jam you like.  The jam is the only part of the
   cookie that has any texture, so I prefer using it to jelly.
   
   Don't eat the cookies straight from the oven, or you'll probably burn your
   tongue.  The jam stays hotter much longer than the cookie.
