DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and 1/2 cup granulated sugar until creamy.
  • Beat in egg yolk, vanilla, and lemon peel.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, stir together flour and salt.
  • Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, blending thoroughly.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or leave ungreased).
  • Shape dough into two logs about 1-inch in diameter and as long as your baking sheets.
  • With the side of your little finger, press a long trench - lengthwise - down the center of each log. DO NOT press all the way down to the cookie sheet or your jam will leak out.
  • Bake logs for 10 minutes.
  • Remove logs from oven and spoon jam into the trenches.
  • Return to oven for 5 - 10 minutes or until logs are firm to touch and a light golden brown.
  • In a small bowl, combine the confectioner's sugar and lemon juice.
  • While cookies are hot, drizzle them with the confectioner's sugar mixture (or spread along the sides of the logs).
  • Cut at a 45 degree angle into 1 inch lengths.
  • Let cool 5 minutes on baking sheet.
  • Transfer to racks and let cool completely.
  • Store in single layers in an airtight container.
