DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Beat butter and sugar until creamy.
  • Add yolks, zest, juice, and vanilla. Beat well.
  • Add the flour mixture and beat to combine well.
  • Form tablespoon-sized balls of dough by rolling dough between your palms to form even spheres. Place on a baking sheet with room between (they will spread!) Press a finger into the top of each ball to make an indentation.
  • Bake the cookies for 10 minutes.
  • Place jam in a bowl and microwave until thinned and smooth (watch this - it wont' take long!).
  • Remove the cookies from the oven. Use a teaspoon measuring spoon to make a crater in the middle of each puffed cookie. Use a 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon to scoop warmed jam into the indentation.
  • Return the cookies to the oven. Bake for 10 more minutes.
  • Allow cookies to cool completely. When cool, dust with powdered sugar. Moisten one finger and gently touch the raspberry portion of each cookie to melt powdered sugar there.
