The Recipe


Adapted from Allrecipes.


  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 egg yolks

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, honey, and egg yolks.
  3. Mix in flour a little bit at a time until a soft dough forms.
  4. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. If dough is too soft, refrigerate for 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Place balls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  6. Use your finger or an instrument of similar size to make a well in the center of each cookie.
  7. Fill the hole with 1/2 teaspoon of jam.
  8. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown on the bottom.
  9. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.
