  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar


Preheat oven to 325 - In a large bowl cream butter and sugar using an electric mixer. Add Vanilla, scraping down bowl as needed. Blend in flower and salt, mixing until thoroughly combined. 

Roll tablespoons full of dough into small balls about 1 inch in diameter. Place dough balls on lightly greased cookie sheets about 1 inch apart. Press down the center of each ball with a spoon, forming a depression. Fill each with a teaspoon of preserves or nuts. 

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer cookies immediately to a cool, flat surface. When cookies are completely cool dust them lightly with confectioners' sugar.
