    Molly53's Note:

    Sugar cookies are pretty good by themselves, but the jelly or jam in this recipe really kicks them up to the next level. From the New England chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.

      This is a delicious sugar cookie; plain on its own but great with jelly. I got 5 dozen made as follows: I used my small 1.25 inch cookie scoop, then flattened the balls slightly with my palm. Using the back of a nicely round 1/2 teaspoon, I pressed a well into the center of each cookie. (Dipped the teaspoon into sugar each time to prevent sticking.) Then I scooped 1/4 tsp. of strawberry jelly into each dip. Baked for 10 minutes and they are great. *DEFINITELY refrigerate the dough overnight- then it isn't so sticky and the baking cookies don't spread out so much. The end result is a slightly sweet, thick cookie that is lovely on my Christmas plates! Thanks for sharing, Molly!
