    1      C             Butter
      1/2  C             Granulated Sugar
    3      C             Flour
      1/2  Tsp           Salt
    1      Tsp           Vanilla Extract
    1      Jar           Apricot Preserves (Or Your Favorite)
                         4X Sugar
 
 Oven 400 degrees F.
 
 Cream butter and sugar until light.  Add flour and salt.  Chill slightly and
 roll 1/8 thick between wax paper sheets.  Roll only a small amount of dough
 at a time.  Using a 2 1/2 cookie cutter, cut cookies.  Cut centers out of
 half of cookies (I use my thimble to cut centers.)  Bake all cookies on
 ungreased sheets at 400° for 8 to 10 minutes or less, until very lightly
 browned.  Cool on wire racks.  Spread whole cookies with preserves, piled
 higher in center.  Top with cookie ring.  Sprinkle with 4x sugar.
 
 Store in tin box between layers of wax paper.
