Cherry Poppyseed Twinks



"A great poppy seed version of the thumbprint cookie. These are so good that they are almost addictive."


2 1/2 dozen

PREP TIME 25 Min
COOK TIME 15 Min
READY IN 1 Hr

INGREDIENTS
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons poppy seeds
1/2 cup cherry preserves

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C ).

Cream together butter and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Mix in flour, salt, and poppy seeds until well blended. Drop dough from a teaspoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Make an indention in the middle of each cookie with your finger. If the dough is too sticky, dip your finger in water first. Fill each hole with about 1/2 teaspoon of cherry preserves.

Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until edges begin to brown
