DIRECTIONS

  • Cream the butter and cream cheese. Add the egg yolk, lemon rind, and vanilla, beating well at medium speed of an electric mixer.
  • Combine the flour sugar, and salt; add to the creamed mixture, beating well. Cover and chill thoroughly.
  • Shape the dough into 1 inch balls.
  • Beat the egg white until foamy. Dip each ball of dough into the egg white; roll in the chopped pecans.
  • Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. (I use parchment paper for easy clean up). Press your thumb into each ball of dough, leaving an indention.
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer cookies to a wire rack and fill each cookie with jam. Let cool completely.
