       Title: SPLIT SECONDS
  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 48 cookies
 
     3/4 c  Butter, softened
     2/3 c  Sugar
       2 ts Vanilla
       1    Egg
       2 c  All-purpose flour
     1/2 ts Baking powder
     1/2 c  Red jelly or preserves
 
   Heat oven to 350F.  In large bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and
   fluffy.  Add vanilla and egg; blend well.  Stir in flour and baking
   powder; mix well.  Divide dough into 4 equal portions.  On lightly floured
   surface shape each part into 12 x 3/4 inch roll; place on ungreased
   cookie sheets.  Using handle of wooden spoon or finger, make depression
   about 1/2 inch wide and 1/4 inch deep lengthwise down center of each roll.
   Fill each roll with 2 tablespoons of jelly.
 
   Bake at 350F for 15 to 20 minutes or until light golden brown.  Cool
   slightly; cut diagonally into strips.  Cool completely on wire racks.

   Notes:  I always seem to get more than 48 - guess I'm cutting them too
   small.  If using jam, try to use seedless, or strain it first.
