1 teaspoon vanilla
¾ cup caster sugar
2 egg yolks
⅔ cup almond meal
1⅓ cup plain flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons of jam
Beat the butter and sugar until light. Add the yolks one at a time until just combined. Add the vanilla, almond meal, flour and baking powder and form a dough.
Roll into balls, flatten very slightly and make a small hollow in each. Fill hollow with jam.
Bake at 160degC for 20-25 minutes.
Note: If you are using homemade jam, combine the jam with a little lemon juice first to help it maintain is colour when baked.
