       Title: Thumbprints/current Jelly
  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 36 servings
  
     1/2 c  Butter
     1/4 c  Brown sugar; packed
       1    Egg; separated
     1/2 ts Vanilla
       1 c  Flour
     1/4 ts Salt
     3/4 c  Walnuts; finely chopped
            Jelly; * see note
  
      DESCRIPTION: Jelly jewels in a butter cookie nest dusted with nuts.
      Heat oven to 350. Mix butter, sugar, egg yolk and vanilla thoroughly.
   Work in flour and salt until dough holds together. Shape dough by
   teaspoonfuls into 1-inch balls. Beat egg white slightly. Dip each ball into
   egg white, then roll in nuts. Place 1 apart on ungreased baking sheet.
   Press thumb deeply into center of each. Bake 10 minutes or until light
   brown.  Immediately remove from baking sheet. Fill thumbprints with jelly.
      * Use Red or Black Current Jelly for filling thumbprint. TERRY'S NOTES:
   I like to fill cookies while still warm---it“melts” the jelly evenly in the
   hole so that it’s not a “blob” sitting there looking at you. These also
   freeze beautifully if separated by layers of wax paper (so the jelly
   doesn't smear) and wrapped well (or stored in plastic containers). Betty
   Crocker.
